About the Author

Tania Zaoui graduated from the Fine Arts School Duperré, where she studied textile design and began working in ceramics. She then became a teacher, working in various Art Schools. Currently, she works for magazines, publishers and events organizations and is the author of a number of culinary books: Cake Decoration, Pastry Workshop with Kids and Appetizers with Marie Claire Books. She has also published books on making porcelain decorations: Jewellery in Modelling Clay and Sweets in Modelling Clay.

She uses the pseudonym 'Paien' to showcase drawings and ceramics which are naive, dreamlike and funny.

Praise For…

Bright colors and sprightly, naive shapes distinguish French artist-author Zaoui's style of pottery decoration. At first glance, these 22 designs seem to resemble a childlike interpretation of Henri Matisse drawings, and, when scrutinized closely, the crosses, dots, and matchsticks combine perfectly with the brilliant turquoises, oranges, yellows, and blues enlivening the dining, living, eating, and bathing places where the finished objects will go in the home. ... Zaoui's method allows crafters to produce professional-looking glaze treatments with a simple home oven. Both found and new objects will inspire, ranging from small bowls and egg cups to trays and even a necklace. — Barbara Jacobs, Booklist 2/7/2020
