Meet the Makers Jerome & Benedicte Leclere of L'Impatience Ceramics. When they left France in 2008, they had no idea that one day they would call upstate NY home. They took a few detours, to Vancouver BC and then Toronto ON before they finally found their way to New York City.
After a few years in the city, countless weekends spent upstate, and with baby Anton on the way, they decided to move to the beautiful Catskills region and grow their business, family, and lives there.
The early beginnings of L'Impatience started in their Brooklyn apartment where they installed a makeshift studio comprised of a potter's wheel and a couple of shelves.
They transported pieces to their local ceramics studio for firing hoping that nothing would break on the way. Many pieces did break because they were eager to see the end results before they were ready. That's how l’Impatience was born.
All of their handmade pieces now come from their home studio in Woodstock, NY. Their four collections include dishes, vases, pitchers and more.
They hope their designs inspire you to rediscover the simple things, celebrate little moments and share it all with others.
