Marie Christophe for Dior, Paris.

The improbable fusion of sculpture and transparency is the essence of Marie Christophe's work.

A gossamer of pewter wire floating as a spider's web punctuated by the substance of crystal or ceramic occupying but never dominating its space. Defying convention, French designer Marie Christophe's graceful forms resolve the dilemma of sculpture and decorative art.

A metamorphose of a sculpture with four bulbs into a chandelier transcends the indefinable frontier between art and utility.

Shown here are some of the Most Excellent chandeliers, bee sconces and sculptures Marie Christophe created expressly for the Christian Dior boutique in Paris, France.
