LEPERLIER Juliette, glass sculpture, permanent artist of the Galerie Capazza since 2015


Born on march, 15th, 1984
Great grand-daughter of the sculptor François Décorchemont, designer of an original technique of molten glass, daughter of Etienne Leperlier, she belongs to one of the great dynasties of glass craftsmen and more particularly the pâte de verre.
She works with passion the pâte de verre, this technique of molding in the lost wax which allows to shape the glass in refractory plaster molds. A technique which consists in coloring the glass in the mass. For the young woman, the molten glass demands numerous specific knowledge, sculpture, modeling, molding, glass-making, foundry, size, polishing but also chemical knowledge of the glass... In brief, a synthesis of techniques which makes it an unique art.
Very recently, Juliette Leperlier took over the direction of the studio of her father.
Her creations are inspired by organic forms, from the nature, characterized by games of opacity and transparency.
Her sculptures are generally of simple forms, close to the abstraction. She likes curves more than right angles, attempts to find a coherence between the shape and the material in her works.
