Mathilde Carron

Mathilde Carron-Astier de Villatte discovered the art of clay at the Beaux Arts in Paris and her decisive meeting with Georges Jeanclos. This marked the beginning of her close relationship with this noble material, which she learned to sculpt, model and patinate according to her research.

Graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1989, she exhibited her work in various galleries in the capital. Mathilde also perfected the art of drawing and obtained the Pierre David-Weill prize from the Académie des Beaux-Arts. In Italy, in Venice, Florence and Rome, at the Villa Medici in particular, she discovered the richness of Italian baroque and popular Roman art alongside her father Pierre Carron, painter and sculptor. With this training, Mathilde Carron-Astier de Villatte, who founded the Astier de Villatte brand, created a line of black earthenware ceramics that made the brand a success and challenged the traditional codes of earthenware work.

Mathilde now offers her creations through trade shows and her know-how to various professionals to create new lines of custom-made ceramics. Inspired by the sumptuous colors and shapes of the mosaics, frescoes, marble and stone floors of the Basilica of San Marco in Venice, Mathilde Carron-Astier de Villatte, with the "Basilica" collection, destructures the famous colonial balls of the Emaux de Longwy into a surprising geometry.
