Belgian born Pierre Culot is a master potter! Born in 1938, he started his formation at the age of 16, which included apprenticeships with mentors in the art of ceramics such as Anglo-Japanese master potter Bernard Leach, and Japanese master potter Shoji Hamada. Having traveled to India and Africa (Congo, Rwanda-Burundi), assimilating traditional pottery and architecture, Pierre Culot eventually opened his own studio, in Brussels, in 1961. He started showing his work in various shows and exibitions all around Europe, since 1962.
