As an offshoot of sorts from France Daily Photo, we have opened “Le Grenier aux Jouets” on our sister site – LuxeEuro. One of the artists with whom we have become acquainted through the years is the delightful ceramiste, Marie Pastorelli.
Marie lives and works near Nimes, where she creates extraordinary ceramic jewelry that seems to mirror the vibrant colors and natural beauty of Provence. She once wrote that she grew up in the same area as the famous French novelist, playwright and filmmaker Marcel Pagnol. Perhaps there is something in the air that stimulates creativity in that area of the country!
An independent artisan, Marie began her career in 1992, after studying fine arts at the Art School of Digne les Bains. In each of her creations, she seems to sculpt unique shapes and fuse a variety of enamel colors. In addition to participating in international trade fairs, Marie offers her work through select retailers and at the Atelier d’Arts boutique in Paris.
And speaking of the Ateliers d’Art de France , we really enjoy going to their boutiques in Paris. They bring together astonishing talents and unique objects and refer to their organization as a center of contemporary creativity that offers selections from more than 150 artists.
Much to our delight, they showcase those vibrant creations in their two boutiques – Talents Opéra in the 9th arrondissement and Talents Etoile on Avenue Niel in the 17th. They are ideal boutiques for finding those limited editions in jewelry, furnishings, tableware and decorative accessories.
We’d love to hear from you!
