My work is a tribute to all the women who wish for a better world.
Bernadette DAGENS is a ceramist/plastic artist, humanist who’s always looking to help the world. She does contemporary artworks where ceramic is always present.
Born in 1966, she develops her knowledge on spaces at the Ecole d’Enseignement Supérieur d’Art de Bordeaux, she then specializes in ceramic at the Beaux-Arts de Vallauris. Those two schools gave her the ability to acquire technique and versatility. Her ease and know-how are fruits of her very rigorous daily work and discipline. After she worked with difference masters, she decides to install her workshop in Lyon in 2005. She also regularly participates to Biennials contests such as ; La biennale des lions de Lyon, or the concours international de Céramique de Carouges in Switzerland. At the same time, she devotes herself to more personal background work in the form of installations and, through her works, experiments with new ideas. The Art of Bernadette DAGENS bonds with companies as a new form of communication. She puts her know-how, ideas and experience at their service.
A word from Bernadette DAGENS: "I like to create large-scale installations, while working on details; I like to talk about people, about their lives, about how they feel. I like to stir emotion, reflection, interrogation".
