Born 1952, works in Anost, France. He began making wood fired pots in the 1970s. He now concentrates on making porcelain and stoneware using a wide range of coloured glazes. He is particularly interested in creating one off pieces rather than concentrating on batch production techniques. His slightly relaxed forms fit beautifully with his choice of glazes and textured surfaces on which they sit.
His work is decorated with his own glaze recipes. Many of these are zinc, frit and titanium based and fired up to stoneware temperatures. Alain continues to exhibit both in France and abroad.
