PHILLIPE BALAYN




I recently discovered French papier-mache artist Phillipe Balayn while browsing through an issue of Cote Sud. I was completely charmed by his work! The level of detail involved is amazing and the whimsical and quirky nature of his work left me wanting to discover more. Now I need to find out if he has any anchovy pieces! Check out his site here.

I love these. The ducks are too cute and visiting his site forced me to practice my francais a bit. It seems we are seeing more papier mache art lately. Any plans on you trying it since you are such a talented lady?

I love the ducks and visiting his site made me practice my very poor french. It seems to me we are seeing more papier mache art lately. Any chance you might try it since you are so talented?

Anne,

These are so fun! Never limit the heights of an artist because there aren't any. Discovery of another's fabulous work give us sparks for our own.

Dear Anne,
I know about Paper- mache.
I have a neighbor here that shows her work all over, many shows. I am impressed, excellent work.

This has been a HOT summer.
