Tell us about your favorite products that are available at L'Empreinte.

I make animal planters that are so much fun! My favourite is a yellow dachshund on four wooden wheels with a leach for pulling.

    Comme le mien, ton seul prénom suffit à nous retracer sur Google!
    Je crains que mes réponses à ta question sur comment provoquer des coulures de glaçure sur une pièce de céramique lors de sa cuisson, n’étaient pas satisfaisantes. Ça dépend de trop de facteurs que nous n’avons pas abordés.

    Je te recomenderais une amie céramiste, enseignante à la Poterie Bonsecours et spécialiste des glaçures : Claude Prairie. Tu peux la rejoindre par la Poterie Bonsecours.
