Catherine Granche

Following a career spanning twenty years, from set design to horticulture, teaching and studies in art history and literature, Catherine Granche chose the practice of contemporary jewelry. She began her studies at the Montreal Jewelry School in 2011 and continued her training in workshops with Noel Guyomarc’h, Peter Hoogeboom, Shu-Lin Wu, Katja Prins and Ruudt Peters. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and Europe and is presented at Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h in Montreal and at L. A.Pai Gallery in Ottawa. Working mainly with porcelain, her research questions our relationship to food as a cultural element and social issue. Her reinterpretation of the formal and historical qualities of the fruits is presented as artifacts of daily life.
