About me

A Ceramic Artist in Montréal

about kness portrait

I make ceramic animal figurines and one of a kind porcelain jewelry in Montréal, Québec. 

All my work is handcrafted, sculpted, painted with the greatest care and a deep love for animals and nature. You can find one of a kind pieces of art in my shop, and second grade pieces on my ko-fi account. 

I’ve always wanted to work with animals. I began as an illustrator, then I spent quite a few years in webdesign and project management. I had a kid, I moved to Montréal. And I discovered clay. Since then, I work with clay almost every day of the week. It’s now my full time job since June 2021.

Becoming a Ceramic Artist 

I had tried clay once before but it did not click at the time. Then I took a few classes. Once I got to sculpt my first otter, in my own style, I just wanted to make more. And now, I’d like to sculpt every animal, every species, from bugs to musk oxes, whales, horses, skunks… I love them all. You’ll find a few articles on my blog about my work and process.

Anyways, as I wrote before, the work speaks for me !
I’d love to answer any question you have (after you read the FAQ where I answered a lot already ^^)

And still being an illustrator 

I can’t not paint or draw. I’ve tried and it makes me sad so I found it’s vital that I put things on paper. I still paint and draw almost every day. That’s why I illustrate all the ceramics boxes. And you’ll find a few printed materials of my works on Society6 as goodies and on Inprnt as art prints.
