About

Welcome to Jacques Monneraud’s website.

If you’re looking for the latest household equipment, you’re on the wrong track. If, however, you’re looking for unique, hand-made stoneware objects, you’re in the right place. Everything you see here is conceived and created by Jacques Monneraud; the objects, the glazes that cover them, the photos and even this little egocentric text written in the third person… Wait no! I didn’t develop this website! It was my friend Bruno who kindly offered to help. And between you and me, that’s a good thing.

Before ceramics, I studied graphic design in Oxford and visual communication in Toulouse. I then worked in the advertising industry for 12 years in Paris, first as an art director, and then as a creative director, until 6 friends and I decided to found our own agency, The Good Company, specialized in purpose-driven communication.

I left everything in 2021 and completed a ceramics Degree. The urge to craft my own objects had taken over. Since then, I create things, some useful, others less so, but always entirely made by hand on my potter’s wheel in my workshop. If you want to know more, you can follow my daily adventures on Instagram. If you want to drop by, you will find me at number 13, promenade du prince impérial in Anglet, studio 7, in a forest that smells of pinewood and iodine. Enjoy and maybe see you soon!
