L'Impatience is a ceramic studio located in Kingston New York, nestled between the Hudson Valley and the Catskills mountains of upstate New York.

We make handbuilt ceramic pieces for the table and the home.

Each one of our pieces are designed with a sense of timelessness and pure form. Our hope is to invite to rediscover and appreciate habitual little rituals with a renewed emotion.

Husband and wife Jerome and Benedicte Leclere are the co-founders and the four hands crafting every piece behind L'impatience.

We started L'Impatience in 2019, finally fullfilling our newfound true calling. We quit our previous careers in advertising and relocated in the Hudson Valley where we started the company from our home near Woodstock for the first year. It quickly grew and became impossible to work from home and we were forced to find a new studio to make our work.

All of our pieces are handmade in our 3,500Sft studio space located in the booming mid-town arts district of Kingston.

We can acomodate up to eight people on the pottery wheel and over a dozen people on our work tables for hand carving workshops.
