Atelier Hilde is a ceramic studio. All products are handmade and so unique. The studio is focus on functional ceramist like tableware, home decor and jewellery. We work in small batches. Sustainable design, materials and minimal lifestyle are essential for a better ecological environment, these design values define everyday’s work with sensitivity and a poetic approach.
I am a French product designer specialized in « New Food Habits ». Graduated with High Honours of a Master’s degree in 2018 at l’École de Design Nantes Atlantique in France, I started then as an independent Designer in Berlin. Passionate about craftsmanship like ceramic, woodwork or textile design, I like to explore characteristic of materials. In 2019, I opened my own ceramic studio in Berlin. After few years of living abroad, and building this wonderful project, I felt like coming back to France and set up my studio by the sea, on the Atlantic coast. Berlin spirit will always be part of my work. Behing surrounded by wild areas is so important to me as nature inspires me a lot as well as daily life. I like to think of my pieces with minimal shapes, it is for me essential for the daily use.
Ceramic offers several parameters that we can play with to create unique pieces such as clay color, glaze, pigments, engobes… This Material enables a lot of possibilities. Different ceramics approaches are explored in the studio such as hand building, slip casting and wheel throwing.
