Sandstone Marceline Hand Sculpted by Hermine Bourdin



Sandstone marceline hand sculpted by Hermine Bourdin Unique Dimensions: H 24 x W 22 cm Materials: Sandstone In my work I’m trying to represent women who are free, who are generous, voluptuous, sensual, strong, thriving and protective. To me, each woman is shaping or sculpting life. This is why at the center of each of my pieces there is a circle which represents continuity and life. It may also represent Earth or sunrise. My work is a tribute to all women whom I view as the queens of our world cradling protectingly over humanity. My interest in clay started when I was a child. I was a student at Rudolf Steiner school. Self-taught, I have been developing a passion for the subject. After several years as an illustrator, graphic designer and stop motion animator, I moved towards a more manual medium. I then embarked on sculpture – a long time favorite subject.. My work is largely inspired by the female body, its forms, its strength, its aesthetics and its creative role. Abstract and surrealism are also great topics of interest. My two years spent in Denmark in Copenhagen played a major role in my quest for minimalism.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
