Line VAUTRIN (1913-1997)


A fiercely independent, strikingly different artist, Line Vautrin created intensely poetic objects after the war.
Her powder compacts, boxes, brooches, necklaces and ashtrays in gilded bronze, whether engraved or enamelled, all evoke the art of jewellery making through their delicacy and tactile qualities.

From the 1960s on, Line Vautrin used her talent to create a completely new range of objects using a new material that she called ‘talosel’. Thin leaves of resin were laid on top of each other in strata, scraped and scarified, worked using fire and studded with tiny shards of mirror, the substance eventually developing the most subtle nuances of colour suggestive of slate or schist, time-worn bone or wood.
