Meet Joanna McKinnon, the artist behind "the pottery of St Géraud" …
Art, we can say that this is Joanna's life, you could almost say that she was born with pencils and brushes in her hands!
Joanna, who has always painted and drawn, studied Art History at university in England and trained in ceramics. And until her final move to France in 2008, she taught these subjects to middle and high school students.
The love of France, and the Périgord Pourpre in particular, led her to settle with her family in the small village of Saint Géraud de Corps, where she set up her studio.
She makes sculpture, pottery, she draws, she paints …
Good to know: Joanna also takes orders for individual pieces for special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries.
"I am constantly inspired by nature and natural shapes and each piece is individually made and finished by hand with a piece of my soul. "

Joanna likes to pass on, that's for sure! With gentleness, patience and kindness, she opened classes for adults and also for children, during the school holidays, in her workshop.
