SCULPTOR


Caroline Heyraud

A graduate from the Ecole des Beaux- Arts in Paris in Architecture, she restored buildings and create interiors for more than 10 years.
 

In 1997, she moved to London and returns to clay modeling she explores since childhood. She developed her art and techniques at the Kensington and Chelsea College and later at the Heatherley School of Art and exhibited for the first time in 2003 at the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum. Her work, inspired from the natural world - humans, mammals, insects... - crosses the fields of architectural knowledge and artistic creation. While revealing structural, strong and balanced look of the original life forms, she further captures the aesthetics essence of the subject in its accuracy and details.

Either in bronze or porcelain biscuit, her sculptures play on the polarity of gravity and lightness and pierce the intimate secrets of nature at its most perfect.
