Anouk’s story is full of meaning. The shepherdess-potter is one of those multi-skilled mountain workers who are very attached to their land, and who have managed to maintain a balance between an inherited pastoral activity and the development of another profession. Part of his work is seasonal and nomadic, enabling him to maintain a close relationship with his animals and mountain nature. The other part, more sedentary and manual, favors union with the earth element. Ultimately, these two professions are a way for the Gêtoise to make the most of what Nature has to offer, skilfully moving from matter to the living world, or vice-versa.
