Husband and wife, Jerome and Benedicte Leclere, form the artistic duo behind L'impatience, crafting each exquisite piece with their four skilled hands. Their journey began in France, but destiny led them to unexpected places, including Vancouver BC and Toronto ON, before finally calling Upstate NY home.
Their love for ceramics took root in their Brooklyn apartment, where they set up a makeshift studio with a potter's wheel and a few shelves. In those early days, they faced challenges in transporting their creations to a local ceramics studio for firing, leading to a few broken pieces. It was during this time that the name "L'impatience" emerged, symbolizing their eagerness to witness the final outcomes of their artistry.
As their journey continued, and with a little baby on the way, they made the life-changing decision to embrace their passion wholeheartedly. They shifted to the serene and picturesque Catskills region, dedicating themselves full-time to their craft. Today, all their creations come to life in their studio nestled in Kingston, NY.
