Starting as a freelance product designer in 2013, her approach is human and poetic while keeping a good eye on function and project request.
The residency at the Studio Porcepolis was a way of exploring the material and discover the properties, tools, finishings and all amazing surprises porcelain can offer.

Mathilde Pagnier graduated in Urban Space in ENSAV La Cambre where she explores the world of artists’ books and publishing and micro social ties woven between the artist, the space and the city.
Resident of the workshop Make-work / The shop in Toronto, she learns the various techniques of ceramics and manufactures of porcelain and stoneware. Seduced by the translucent properties of porcelain, fineness, whiteness, Mathilde focuses specifically on the production by casting porcelain pieces. Functional or sculptural, unique pieces or very small series, these objects are always poetic, sometimes with a touch of humor.
The residency at Porcepolis is for Mathilde a way to deepen her knowledge of porcelain, to experiment more with the shape and to go further in the technical exploration of matter.
