“I love to create simple, elegant pieces that bring a sense of joy, harmony, inspiration, balance or even empowerment. I play with colors, shapes, textures and sometimes language to create pieces that are sensory experiences to hold in your hand or have in your home.” says Cecile Mestelan
In 2015, she opened her first workshop in Estrela to continue exploring ceramics. She taught classes and began producing her first tableware pieces. In September of 2020, she moved her atelier to the São Bento neighborhood.
“I love that there are many unexpected surprises throughout the process of making ceramics. An imperfection can very quickly become a discovery. My work continues to evolve as I spend more time creating pieces, it is a process I love and am also very grateful for, it teaches me a lot about patience while also having a lot of freedom to create and express in a way that is really pure for me.”
