Cathy Azria…

…it is June…and there is no need for blazing fires to keep us warm…we do, however, have an opportunity to turn our fireplaces into works of art.

Artist/designer Cathy Azria was born in Tunisia and lived in France until she came to London in 1980 to study sculpture. Living in London ever since and working for private clients, architects and designers, she designs sculptural installations for interiors. She draws her inspiration from natural materials, organic forms, the interplay of light and a conviction that what is functional in the home can also be beautiful. Fire is the area interesting her most at the moment. She began to design fire installations when her search for a contemporary fireplace for her own home proved fruitless. Since then, she has been exploring the whole concept of fire and light, using metal both for its sculptural potential and for the way that it responds to heat, transforming into glowing forms.

Cathy never has and will never, mass-produce. She works by establishing a train of thought, then developing and refining it in response to each client’s requirements. Every piece is therefore unique, signed and numbered by its creator.

Why Not Blue?…

…yes, why not?  I always seem to gravitate toward a neutral palette or green when choosing a palette for my home…green is ‘a given’ when considering nature…but think of sky and water…so…

Floating..

….it has taken years of research and perfecting the process that has given Peter Gentenaar, a paper artist based in the Netherlands, a deep understanding of  paper-making. Gentennar explains, “at the basis of all my forms remains the nature of the pulp. Pulp making is my real art”.  He uses paper pulp and bamboo ribs to create his floating large-scale paper installations…I would love to wrap myself in these sensuous sculptures…and float from above like a Cirque du Soleil  artist…
