Who am I?
Hello, I am Viktoria Jeanroy; originally from Hungary, but now based in Aeugst am Albis with my French husband and our two girls. Pottery is my passion.
I fell in love with ceramics at an art camp in Hungary one summer, when I was about 10 years old. I quickly discovered that working with clay was something special for me. So calming, creative, versatile, and satisfying (I could go on…:-)). However, my life went in another direction. Much later, in 2007, I moved to Zurich, Switzerland on my own, and never would have imagined that ceramics would be calling me while I worked in the world of banking and finance, but it did. I participated in several pottery courses in Switzerland, Italy and Austria and also I taught myself at the same time.
Once again though, I turned my back on my passion. In exchange I was blessed with a wonderful partner and two beautiful, sweet girls.
What I needed to learn was that my family and my passion both had an important place in my life.
So here I am, today I am practicing the knowledge of all these years in my small studio, Aeugst am Albis, nestled between Zug and Zurich.
I create hand-built, functional, yet decorative stoneware and porcelain pottery designed to make your everyday moments a little more special. My pieces reflect elegance, calmness and the endless creativity that we all have in our hearts. I handcraft each piece individually and lovingly. I choose the designs thoughtfully to ensure they fit into minimal homes as well as bolder interiors.
