After being an artistic director for over 20 years, handling the launch of various cultural projects, French designer Frédérick Gautier embarked on studies at the École du Paysage in Versailles, where he became acquainted with modelling and ceramics. Due to his fascination for brutalism, Gautier went in search of a type of clay that closely resembles concrete after the firing process. Since launching, his FCK signature has adorned all of his creations working with this material. Passionate about growing food, he is also doing research about tools that were once used to feed oneself with. With his enthusiasm for events, Frédérick Gautier also shares his work in a variety of spaces, turning exhibitions into performances.
