Line Vautrin: Sculptor, Jeweller, Magician
Line Vautrin: Sculptor, Jeweller, Magician by Thames & Hudson at Birzula. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. Line Vautrin is one of those archetypally French personalities - others are Cocteau, Piaf and Christian Berard - whose talents are compounded of
Like Schiaparelli, Vautrin pioneered designer buttons; but hers were part of a range of jewelry that is utterly unlike anyone else's: made in a variety of substances from gilt bronze to resin, and in forms inspired by ancient Greek coins, medieval folk art, animals, word-games, or, in her extraordinary abstract ensembles, the material itself. From jewelry, her love of handiwork and inventing shapes led her on to sculpture, and finally to an altogether new art-form which she calls "pellimorphoses."
But Line Vautrin is much more than the sum of her inventions: she is a part of history, and her work is sought by museums. This tribute is the first to fix the shifting colors of her life in permanent form. Vautrin herself has contributed a witty autobiographical sketch, and supervised the layout of her pieces in the color plates, while Patrick Mauries supplies a knowledgeable assessment of her work.
An incarnation of the ideal Parisienne, Line Vautrin has been fashioning whimsical, charming objects for decades. Now a new audience has the chance to enter her enchanted world.
