Chabrolle studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Pau and spent two years in the Phnom-Penh Fine Arts faculty in Cambodia. The artist’s approach is a highly personal adventure. Every encounter, every country. she has travelled through, every image glimpsed, and every emotion experienced, contribute to her creation. Her works are a passionate tribute to grace and femininity. She draws, sculpts and transforms women in bronze, producing curved figures of expressive gentleness that emanate a sense of contemplation and inner strength. Her works are exhibited in the Galeries Bartoux in Paris, Megève, Cannes, London, New York and Singapore.

When asked about Water Lilly and using crystal as medium, she is quoted to have said the following:
"Le lys d’eau is only a straight line full of emotions, memories, tastes, and past lovers transmuted in the solitude of the workshop. Before becoming a sculpture, “Le Lys d’Eau” was at first a perfume, a sweet and warm summer afternoon, a river of shade under the trees, a man who will gather water lilies in a stream to replant them in a fountain of a house. What do we know of our hearts and hands mingling with the earth, when a sculpture is created under our fingers? We know everything that has been collected from emotion, from that moment…then we forget about it to see it reappear in the most secret of the earth. But which artist can say that he was never satisfied? That after the earth, he would not want to sculpt the sky or the clouds…with time why not…if he has found the way to do it.

Each Daum crystal piece is made using the rare and ancient "Pâte de Verre" glassmaking technique, which dates back to 5,000 BC and involves melting many fragments of colored crystal within a mold. This results in intense colors and subtle shading. Handmade in France. Limited edition of 128.

Measures 10&frac14" x 7" x 34" h.
