DALLOUN  -  Terra Sigillata


Dalloun has his studio in La Borne, France.  His mastery in terra sigillata is known worldwide. During these two-days workshop, he will share his knowledge and mastery in our studio in Nismes, Belgium.


For several years, he did a lot of research to control  his techniques, and his famous bowls are the ideal medium for expressing the beauty of its art.


Years of trial and error, doubts, disappointment and joy, were necessary to achieve mastery of his art, on the path of clay.
