Mature Jean Cartier

I have added a page on renowned Quebec ceramist and muralist Jean Cartier. Ironically less known outside of Quebec today he was a major and inspiring influence in ceramics, especially during the 1970s to the 1990s.  His vision and techniques crossed stylistic and technical boundaries.

His contributions to studio ceramics and public art should be more widely recognized. I hope the page will help.

    Hello Barry,I have often wondered about a potter/monk, Julien Cloutier, who was a fellow classmate around 1965 in a summer workshop with Val Cushing at Alfred. Ever hear of him?  Any word on whether he is still on the “sunny side of the sod?” Thank you,Jack Troy.

      Hello, Jack.

      Thank you for the enquiry on Julien Cloutier. I have seen his works but agree that details about him are few and far between. I will provide here some links I have but will send you an email with other details attached. One of the best resources on Quebec ceramics is Association des collectionneurs de céramique du Québec (ACCQ). There is a calendar reference to presentation on Cloutier by Jacques Blais just this past June 11, 2017. ( http://www.ceramiqueduquebec.com/modules/APCal/index.php?action=View&event_id=0000000353 ) Coincidence? The same group has postings on Cloutier works by active members of the group. An excellent and knowledgeable resource I have found for such artists and their works is Jacqueline Beaudry Dion (jbdion@gmail.com) She could help provide more contact details for M. Blais. Good luck on the research. Let me know how it turns out

    The most recent A.C.C.Q meeting was held just 2 days ago (June 11, 2017) in Lévis, QC. Jacques Blais did a most interesting presentation on Julien Cloutier also known as Frère Julien. He managed to sum up the important carreer and influence of Julien Cloutier on the Quebec ceramic scene. Several pieces (some monumental) were on display . I will try to provide pics later on.

      Many thanks for sharing the information, Charles. Your sharing is one of the goals I wanted to accomplish with the website. I hope you are successful in forwarding pictures to me. There is surprisingly so little information on Cloudier available. Thank you for your offer.
