Heliolite Mirror


Description/

Nathalie Ziegler-Pasqua’s small colorful mirrors are made from multitudes of blown glass shapes cut into pieces and composed into larger aggregate forms often inspired by flowers, birds, and other natural phenomena. Her work is uniquely embedded in the historical traditions of beautiful French craftsmanship drawn from centuries of celebrated savoir-faire. The glass used in her mirrors is produced by Verrerie Saint-Just, the famed glassworks established in 1826 by royal decree of Charles X who created the glass for projects by many historically esteemed artists including Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, and Fernand Léger.

"Born the daughter of an aeronautical engineer in Paris in 1970, Nathalie Ziegler Pasqua is known for her enchanting, gravity-defying works spun from glass and light. Prior to embarking on her design career, she was a dancer and soloist at the Paris Opera for two decades, appearing onstage in London, Moscow and Tokyo and working with luminaries such as Mats Ek, Rudolf Nureyev, and Jerome Robbins. She is self-taught in glass sculpture and launched her first collection for Arums in 2002 at Maison et Objet’s Scene d’Interieur show. Since then, her work has gained admirers far and wide via presentations at galleries, fairs and private residences across the world.

Ziegler Pasqua’s suspended glass and light creations are made from multitudes of blown glass shapes cut into pieces and composed into larger aggregate forms often inspired by flowers, birds, and other natural phenomena. Her work is uniquely embedded in the historical traditions of beautiful French craftsmanship drawn from centuries of celebrated know-how. The glass used in her pieces is produced by Verrerie de Saint-Just, the famed glassworks established in 1826 by royal decree of Charles X, which created the glass for projects by many historically esteemed artists including Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, and Fernand Léger. Ziegler Pasqua’s artful, one of a kind lighting sculptures catch the eye, dance with light and illuminate the spaces they inhabit. Silvered and sandblasted glass pieces are cut and assembled to refract and propagate light into subtle ornamental and ethereal visions. To achieve these stunning effects, Ziegler Pasqua works with several other traditional French houses: Egrise et Millon in Pantin, which performs manual silvering and sandblasting of Saint Just glasses; Les Ateliers Marcotte, the last remaining bronzers in Paris skilled in the art of made to measure, lathe-cut suspension structures; and Lorraine-based Mad Verrerie D’Art, the glass art workshop responsible for creating delicate glass cones to cover the bulbs within her sculptures.

Ziegler Pasqua’s work has been exhibited internationally in Italy (Tearose and Milan Triennale 2003), New York (Whitney Museum Art Party 2005, Troy Gallery, and Barneys), Los Angeles (Gray Gallery), San Francisco (Steven Volpe Gallery), London (Thomas Goode), Bangkok (Jim Thompson), and Hong Kong (Joyce). In France, her work has appeared at Printemps du Lux, the shop of the Museum of Decorative Arts, Joyce Paris Gallery, Arums Gallery, PAD in Paris, Hélène Bailly Gallery for Art Paris, Mougin Gallery, Hôtel de Crillon, Hôtel des Bains, and the Graff Paris Vendôme jewelry store. Her pieces are held in numerous private collections throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the US. Recently, two of her suspensions were installed in L ‘Abbazia San Gregorio as part of the Chahan Gallery project for the Contemporary Art Biennale in Venice."
