Michèle Jarnoux seeks to express emotions and feelings through her sculptures. Her first series entitled "Empreintes et Variations" that she elaborates from 2011 to 2014, gives birth to characters coming out of the rock, at the limit of abstraction.

It is the movement of the body, through its posture, which is the reflection of emotions. The lines or imprints become strata that can recall the mineral world. The forms become geometrical, sometimes turning towards abstraction.

Sculpture in stoneware engobed with porcelain & blue gray pigments.

Michèle Jarnoux, the secret filiations of matter

"I want to get off the beaten track, to seek emotion through innovation.

Michèle Jarnoux's sculptures mix ceramics and fused glass, two particularly indecisive materials that require manual expertise and patience.

A lover of nature, her work bears witness to the preservation of the environment and the marine world, giving back to nature its relief and its particularities. It is a dream in the making, stretching from the depths of the sea to the sky.

Dedicated entirely to sculpture since 2011, her artistic approach is based on the search for the transformation of the material. Without any model or drawing beforehand, the artist lets herself be carried by her imagination. The form is born from her hands. Accident and control influence each other, respond to each other and make sense together.

"I visualize my work and my hands sculpt. My fingers are my eyes."

Her first series entitled Empreintes et Variations that she elaborates from 2011 to 2013 gives birth to characters emerging from the rock, bordering on abstraction. Then her series Mémoires de la Mer (Memories of the Sea) in 2013 illustrates her research on the effects of textured matter evoking coral and the association of glass and ceramics.

A discovery of 2020 born of a happy accident that the artist has been analyzing and mastering ever since, brings together in the center of the sculpture the glass that foams like foam. The effect is particularly surprising and successful. This emergence of a part of the marvellous is a true experience in the heart of the material.
