Ceramic Artist, Figurative & Realistic
Born in France, 1963

Fanny lives with her Family and her terra cotta figures in a Grotto in Normandy at the foot of a cliff. In entering the Grotto room used to exhibit her work one feels that her figures are frozen in time, and frozen in their movements, similar to those of the unearthed in Pompeii.

She grew up where she lives now and, as a child she played with the clay she now uses to create her statues, dreaming of what she has achieved now. Fanny seamlessly works her figures from the feet upward, with no models and not even a sketch. It is easy, she says, you just have to think yourself inside (the clay). She wants her people without apparel: They will always have something in common if we remove the superficial. My People have just what is necessary to exist.

"I look at all these Bodies, imperfect and inaccessible; and I see through them the perfection and the exacerbation of the Desire; I feel a motionless movement, a time that is frozen, an Eros that dresses and undresses."                                                                                                                                                                              Bernard Blandin
