Ceramics & Illustration

Caroline Vetsmany is a French illustrator based in Lisbon since 2016. You can recognise her quirky style either in her illustrations on paper or in ceramics.

 

Initiating a work around the women in particular, she started painting and carving our shortcomings on the clay: from the forced smiles of the synchronised swimming to hair-raising street styles of fashion weeks, through selfies of geishas and suggestives poses of IG influencers. 

 

 

 

Inspired by the heritage of her adoptive country, she plays shifting and renewing its iconography: from sacred art of the XVIs to queens of the Middle Age through the traditional upper-class of Cascais.

 

 

Impassive or grimacing, her people are made to make you uncomfortable or smiling.
