Amélie Lucier, ceramic artist +
Julien Mongeau, glassblower
a+j stands for Amélie and Julien. One is a ceramic artist, the other is a glassblower, and they are partners in both life and work. Sharing their skills and creativity, these craftspeople both help each other to push their ideas further within creative sessions that pepper their daily lives. Although the function of the objects that they design determines which raw material they use, it’s the material itself that guides the entire creative process. By choosing to produce kitchen accessories, they have chosen to respond to a passion that moves Amélie like thousands of other Quebecers – a passion that closely reflects the passion that the both creators feel for their respective domains. Amélie and Julien are two people, two techniques, two raw materials, united to create one-of-a-kind items.
