Valérie Hermans (born in 1959)
Valérie Hermans soon takes interest in two thousands of years old Asiatic traditions as her art media of predilection, ceramics and calligraphy, fire and ink. She studies ceramics in the National Superior School of Applied Arts in Paris while at the same time acquiring training in calligraphy and Chinese painting from one of the great Korean masters, Ung-No-Lee. Valérie Hermans lives and works with ceramist Jean Girel in Bourgogne.
She approaches ceramics as a calligrapher, emphasizing spontaneity and precision of her movements. With their modest size and simplicity of lines, her pieces remind of the Chinese ceramics produced under the Song dynasty (960-1279) or during the years of the Korean Koryo Kingdom (918-1322). Valérie Hermans’s creations are exhibited in prestigious art galleries in France and throughout Europe and constitute masterpieces of numerous private collections.
