Laure Simoneau

Wire Sculptor, Paris, France
  • Handcrafted in France. In a celebration of craftsmanship and manufactoring traditions, we tour each French region to bring you our curated selection of exceptional homeware, gifts and collectibles.

I sculpt empty space to express the invisible.
Taking an ordinary piece of wire, Laure Simoneau hammers, twists, solders, caresses and cajoles it until it becomes, in a transcendent leap, a face, a hand, a body, or speaks to us in a word, a phrase, a poem.

Laure Simoneau’s sculptures are an invitation to travel to a more abstract, a more intimate dimension, taking us with force, energy and emotion to a place beyond the sense of touch, where matter exists only as a suspension of a living void, and the soul of the portrait can be felt in the sliver of space between the wires. The void is full, tangible, captured and held inside the thin, black metal lines.

Like the women that many of her works celebrate, her sculptures may appear fragile, but are in fact strong, resilient, full and expressive. It is in her Paris atelier that they are born, between the Parisian sidewalk—a place for meeting and exchanging—and a sunny, plant-filled inner courtyard.
