Lucile Viaud

Lucile started her studies at the Ecole Boulle  and in 2015  graduated with a Diploma in Applied Arts in object design. The same year, she launched her project, Ostraco, which was part of her graduation research.
During her training course, Lucile Viaud began a process of recycling waste from the Breton marine industry in order to create a 100% marine material. She develops her own recipes by gradually substituting the raw materials present in the composition of the glass with materials sourced from the sea (shells, shells, bones, seaweed), and thus obtains two materials: marine plaster and marine glass.
Lucile Viaud is the winner of the Grands Prix de la creation of the City of Paris 2018 (design-emerging talent category).
