The Boutique NE FAITES PAS L’AUTRUCHE
 

In 2005, José formed a partnership with Marie-Ange Samon. Both decided to give the name Ne faites pas l’autruche (Don’t behave like an ostrich) to their boutique.

This was in order to remind passer-bys that there are genuine professional craftswomen in Québec, impassioned creators who love their craft and wish to make a living out of it. That is the reason for the name... Don’t act as if you didn’t see us!

Marie-Ange Samon was born in Grenoble in the French Alps. She was very young when she started travelling and discovering the world’s other cultures. As an adult, she initiated herself to weaving on a high warp loom and created contemporary tapestries which allowed her to fulfill her passion for colours and matter. When she arrived in Québec in 1992, she realized that her tapestries would not suffice to earn a living. She then dedicated herself to pottery, an art that she had learned while she was sojourning in Boston.

“I draw my inspiration from my roots (weaving and travelling) in the sacred universal memories. The places from which I draw my inspiration are loaded with symbols. Through myth figments, through fragments and story outlines, I wish to create a dream space. I love earth because of its memory which conveys a part of the ceramist’s thought through the centuries”.
