Henriette Arcelin is a French illustrator and ceramicist, currently living between Lisbon and Paris. After graduating from Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, she studied ceramics in Lisbon and trained in various ateliers. Working in the field of interior design, her illustrations and ceramics can be seen in various restaurants and hotels in Portugal and France.
Collecting objects she uses as models for her ceramics or illustrations is part of her creative process. For her illustrations and ceramic works, she invents imaginary spaces, drawing inspiration from botany, natural history illustrations, and marine biology.
This recollection of objects and places allow the creation of a fantasy landscape. In her personal cabinets of wonders, we can find some reminiscence of childhood, or the places she traveled or lived in, and various references to folklore, textiles, and crafts from different parts of the world.
