Doris was born in Mainz, Germany. From the youngest age, nature has been a place to dream, imagine and relax. Coming into communion with the elements, the earth, the plant, and particularly the air, the breath, which carries and transmits life, gave her the feeling of fully existing.
Arriving in Paris in the 90s, Doris follows many training in sculpture, drawing, glass and ceramics. By continuing this dialogue with herself through different modes of expression, she had a first revelation 25 years ago by creating the bust of her two-year-old son in clay, with this powerful impression of bringing out his essentiality. Working with clay, feels for her as an encounter with oneself, the history of the universe and of humanity.
And the second, with the discovery of Wabi-Sabi. Beyond the aesthetic concept, it is a real spiritual process, a kind of state of absolute porosity favoring breathing between one’s interiority and the outside world. An acceptance of impermanence, of their imperfections and incompleteness.
In the 2000s, Doris moved to the South of France and focuses of her favorite clay, the porcelain, a symbol of light. The clay most opposed to his approach at first : hard, cold, waterproof, luxurious, almost arrogant. But which precisely, by its purity, its delicacy, its whiteness, its translucency, synthesis of all colors, allows a fine writing, where the meaning goes beyond the form, the intangible shows through best and can resonate with others materials. In 2007, she decided to join a collective of artists and opened a place dedicated to creation at the Tuilerie Bossy.
