About

Cécile*Mestelan is a Lisbon based homeware ceramic company founded in 2013. All pieces are complementary and designed to emphases natural lines and functionality. Each piece is entirely hand-made in our Lisbon studio from the best materials. Note that as pieces are made by hand and by nature, every piece will be slightly different with beautiful imperfections.

 

Cécile's work explores a minimalist, geometric aesthetic in which plaster, marble, and ceramics draw in the eye to texture, symmetry and smooth lines. Her influences are global and truly eclectic including the endless column of Brancusi (Romania), the Kachina dolls of the Hopi people (Arizona, US) and the art brut painter Augustin Lesage of Cécile’s native France. Perfect for the home where items are explored over months and years, Cécile’s work aims to encourage high interaction as the individual comes close to a small object with large significance that they examine, explore and uncover over time.

A true European spirit, Cécile Mestelan was born in France, graduated from Lausanne, Switzerland, and now lives and works in Lisbon.
