Ceramifique is a collaboration between French artist Jean-Philippe Levillain and Irish artist Jennifer Ahern that brings together their ceramic and fine art backgrounds to create a truly unique collection of contemporary ceramic homeware and porcelain jewellery.
Jean-Philippe and Jennifer met in Crawford College of Art and Design and after graduating in 2015, they set up Over the Line Studios; a ceramic and fine art studios in Cork City where they have been based since. After practising individually for a few years they joined forces in 2018 to create Ceramifique. The collaboration brings together their individual skills and design point of views that compliment each other, and allows them to create a much more exciting handmade collection together.

The central design element to the Ceramifique collection is the bubble decorating technique that the artists developed over a number of years to create a truly unique and recognizable cosmic signature finish. Everything is is hand built, predominantly using slabs of white stoneware, to which the bubble technique is applied to. As each piece is decorated individually, no two pieces are ever the same.
