Janine Parent

    Janine Parent completed her diploma in Fine Crafts with a specialization in ceramic at the Cegep Limoilou in 2000. She also participated in several workshops in Quebec and France to perfect various firing and basketry techniques. A peaceful sense of harmony emerges from the simplicity, clean lines and refined shapes that characterize her ceramics. To obtain a soft and silky surface, each piece is patiently polished before undergoing the raku firing. It produces a spontaneous and random line effect making each piece unique. Janine Parent received many awards and distinctions and is part of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec as well as the Association des céramistes du Québec.
