Born in 1976 in Paris, Laurence Bonnel discovered the art of sculpture in 1998, through her art history and literature courses that revolved around the human form. Human figures play a key role in the works of Laurence Bonnel –  she creates architectural silhouettes, primitive in some sense, which emanate a grand presence. The motif of the human, that of couples and that of the crowd, is recurrent and central in her imagination, and is purified with stylization akin to that found in the works of Giacometti, or the Cubist bodies of Zadkine.

The silhouettes she crafts express in themselves, their narrative form. They find their transmission through the inner and subjective experience of the spectator. The process of identification takes place: the more one observes the silhouette, the more one gets into introspection.

Each Daum piece is made using the rare and ancient "Pâte de Verre" glassmaking method, which dates back to 5,000 BC. It involves melting many fragments of colored crystal within a mold, resulting in intense colors against a subtle background. Handmade in France. Limited edition of 125. 

Measures 9" x 15¾" x 14" h.
