Who are we?
We are French artist Jean-Philippe Levillain and Irish artist Jennifer Ahern. We met in 2011 in Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork, where we were doing our degrees in ceramics and fine art. After graduating in 2015 we founded Over the Line Studios, a ceramic and fine art studios in Ballyvolane Cork where we have been based since.
At first we each had our own practices and range of ceramic products we were individually developing.In 2018, after a series of random events, we decided to put our products together under the one brand and Ceramifique as we know it now was born! We felt we filled the gaps in each others collections and together, could create something much more exciting.
Ceramifique is a collaboration that brings together our individual skills and design point of views to create a truly unique collection of contemporary home ware and porcelain jewellery. Our signature bubble technique ties the collection together, giving the work a colourful cosmic finish individual to each piece.
