This piece testify Line Vautrin fabulous capacity to work the Talosel, material of her own invention in 1953.
The structure here is composed of different nivels, giving a very sculptural aspect.

This shape of oyster is also a model of mirror, rare as well. Conceived in a very naturalist approach, this bowl with inclusion of mirrors only in the inside, like an oyster containing a pearl, is a delicate case very exquisite.
