About Martine Ménard

Martine Ménard started her design career in the 60’S working for esteemed global Fashoin Houses Givenchy, Dior and Balenciaga.

Fuelled by a passion for colour and texture, Martine’s relentless search for new artistic expressions, lead her to a new career in ceramics in 1997.

Travel through Asia, South america, Eastern Europe and Africa allowed valuable exploration in form, colour, texture and light culminating in an exquisite evolving collection of hand-crafted pieces.

Using porcelain from Limoges, China, Australia, Martine’s work won the prestigious Madame Figaro’s  « Les Arts de la table » award in 2005.

Since then, her work has been featured in Michelin-Star restaurant Le Dome’s book, in Elle Magazine and Elle Decoration.



I started my designer career with Givenchy, Dior, Balenciaga. In the late 60s' I created my own label “M.G. Store” which was distributed in a trendy Saint Germain des Prés store. I then chose to become a freelance designer for French, Canadian, Italian and Hong Kong industrials. All along, I was passionate for color and textures which I never ceased to research.
It is therefore very naturally that my years of research and passion found a new form of expression when I started my new life of ceramist in 1997 with Georges and Rocio Vinaver in Gustavo Perez Mexican workshop.
I very quickly found my trademarks by making pieces as thin as eggshells under the direction of Yoland Cazenove and perfected Raku's technic in an workshop with Dauphine Scalbert.
The acquisition of a ceramic kiln enabled me to give way to my flourishing creative inspiration. This rapid rise in production has been heightened by the very positive reception of my work. Although being a “young ceramist”, my inspiration has been nourished by decades of research around colors, materials, shapes.

Since then my creations have been exposed numerous times, been published in magazines, sold in decoration stores, galleries and international exhibitions.
