In the Chiesa di San Rocco
Every year we ask an artist with connections to Tuscany to do an art exhibition in the small 13th century church of Chiesa di San Rocco. The beautiful little church lies in front of Palazzo Tiglio and is still owned by the parish of San Pancrazio.
Chiesa di San Rocco
Chiesa di San Rocco is the oldest religious building in San Pancrazio built in the 13th century. This still ordained church is owned by the parish of San Pancrazio, that kindly offers it to us for art exhibitions during the summer months.
Swiss-born artist Christiane Perrochon creates stoneware and porcelain ceramics entirely by hand from her studio in Castiglion Alberti, just a few kilometres from Palazzo Tiglio.
Christiane Perrochon creates high temperature ceramics in stoneware and porcelain, entirely made by hand, which explore light and simple forms enriched with multi-hued glazes. Refined objects ready to be integrated in the most modern of contexts.
Christianes passion for color first stirred during her studies at the Ecole des ArtsDecoratifs in Geneva. Her forty years of research with high-temperature ceramic glazes continues to be a testimony to both her sense of depth and dedication. Obsessed with color and possessed with a sixth sense for discovering and developing hues that have rarely, if ever, been seen in stoneware, Chrstianes professional reputation is revered.
