Collection: Simon Manoha

Simon Manoha, born in 1987 in Guilherand Granges, Ardèche, France, has established his workshop in the heart of his ancestral land. His artistic journey began with studies in improvised music and contemporary philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, before he returned to his early interest in photography, inspired by his uncle, a potter. This blend of influences and childhood memories ultimately led him back to pottery.  

With an Anagama wood-fired kiln nearby and abundant sources of clay and minerals for his glazes in Ardèche, Simon draws inspiration from the region's natural resources. Through his work, Manoha expresses a profound connection to his birthplace and a passion for crafting beautiful objects that mirror the beauty and diversity of nature.
