INSPIRATION

MY SOURCES OF INSPIRATION ARE MULTIPLE.

I DRAW THEM FROM THE EARTH SCIENCES -MEDITERRAENEAN GEOMORPHOLOGY, GEOLOGY AND GEMMOLOGY- FROM LITHOTHERAPY, WEAVING, ARCHITECTURE AND PAINTING, FROM INTERCULTURALITY AND OF COURSE FROM MY CHILDHOOD IN MARSEILLE, MY YEARS IN SWEDEN AND THEN PARIS. MY CREATIONS ARE ALL THE RESULT OF A CREATIVE PROCESS. EACH MARAIS VOUS JEWELLERY PIECE HAS ITS STORY, ITS SPARKLE...

How did I get the idea of my famous BRACELET BAUHAUS Marais Vous ?

It was while observing this geological map of the Sainte Baume massif in Provence (1) that I first thought of shapes and colours...

Then I thought about the marriage of two gemstones : Apatite and Tourmaline (2) with relaxing power...

Les calcaires jurassiques et crétacés (calcaires urgoniens à rudistes de la Sainte-Baume, cf. Les rudistes du Castellet (Var) ) sont les roches desquelles sortent les sources de l’Huveaune.
Le poljé de Cuges-les-Pins est visible sur la carte géologique d’Aubagne-Marseille. 2 (https://planet-terre.ens-lyon.fr/image-de-la-semaine/Img668-2020-03-09.xml)

Then the spark! remembered the works of the German women Gunta Stölzl (3) and Anni Albers (4), from the weaving workshop of the Bauhaus School, created in 1919 by the architect Walter Gropius, a fervent defender of functionalism, who wanted to abolish the boundaries between fine arts, crafts and industry.

_

I observed the beauty of their weavings where the threads find their own language…

_

Then I remembered the tapestry “The four elements” by the Swedish Karin Larsson (5)

Finally, I associated these sources of inspiration with the paintings of the Russian Wassily Kandinsky (6) and the Swiss Jean Tinguely (7) whom I venerate

_

And I began to weave the BRACELET BAUHAUS MARAIS VOUS for you.

_

“I hope that by wearing a Marais Vous jewellery piece, everyone will fall in love with freedom and project themselves onto the roofs of Paris or onto the flowery bank of a river with crystal clear waters, under the sun at its zenith.”

 Odile Louis-Pays.
