Chain Store Cormatin

Recently Monique Dégluaire, a sculptor in clay, opened an annexe in Cormatin, the Comptoir des Artistes.

Comptoir des Artistes - Cormatin
She is not really a potter, because she mainly makes figurative sculptures, while there are no or hardly any plates, cups, saucers, small household utensils, tiles and the like in her assortment. She exhibits her work throughout France (Lyon, Paris) and one can also admire her creations in her workshop in Bessuge, a hamlet in the commune of Chapaize. Last year she opened, together with another local artist Martine Borzycki a showroom in Cormatin itself.
Although taking pictures in her showroom and workshop is not allowed, I am able to show one of her works in this blog; I can do this for the simple reason that this sculpture is ours and stands in our garden.

La Tuilerie de Chazelle
Monique gives courses and stages in her workshop, which are quite popular.

Bessge as well the Comptoir des Artistes are not further than a 10 minutes drive away from La Tuilerie de Chazelle.
