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

Each one of our pieces is designed with a sense of timelessness and pure form. Our hope is to invite you to rediscover and appreciate small rituals with 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 NYC and relocated to the Hudson Valley where we started the company from our home near Woodstock. It quickly outgrew our home studio, so we decided to take the leap and find a new studio for our work.

All of our pieces are handmade in our 3,500sqft studio space located in the booming midtown 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.
