Born in 1976 in Paris, Laurence Bonnel discovered the art of sculpture in 1998, through her Art History and Literature courses that revolved around figuration.
The human figure plays an essential role in Bonnel's work. She creates architectural, almost primitive silhouettes, which emanate a grand presence. The motif of the human shape, that of couples and that of the crowd, is recurrent and central in her work, and her formal stylization immediately evokes the spindly forms of Giacometti, or the Cubist bodies of Zadkine.
Bonnel creates "silhouettes without faces, but expressive. Like the difficult experience of questioning oneself."
The Silhouettes transmit their narrative through the inner and subjective experience of the spectator. The process of identification takes place: the more one observes the Silhouette, the more one observes herself.
“I have always been fascinated by the “savoir-faire,” Bonnel says. "I opened a gallery in which I exhibit art furniture and works with a common characteristic: the excellence of realization."
"The discovery of the Daum workshops came from my passion for the arts and crafts. Their collaborations with the biggest artists of the time for more than a century has always been a part of Daum, well before many other luxury brands, creating a very strong link with Fine Art."
"For me, crystal remains a magical and mysterious material. During my visit to the Daum workshops, I realized that the work is quite similar to that of the bronze foundry, even though the material is quite the opposite: fragile and unpredictable. Each sculpture, however reproducible, takes life differently, and becomes unique. Thanks to the technical mastery of Daum, the crystal gives a new meaning, a particular emotion, to my work.” —Laurence Bonnel
Since 1878, Daum has created world renown art pieces out of their crystal studio in Nancy, France. Every crystal piece by Daum is signed with "Daum France" to signify its origin and quality. Pâte de cristal is a Daum speciality; a precious material that gives their creations a sculptural depth and dimension, which has been refined unceasingly over time. Pâte de cristal has the quality of giving translucency to the forms it reproduces and the brilliance of this material, the intensity of colors and the myriad subtile shades all contribute to Daum’s unique methods.

Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum.
Currently Daum is the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâte de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, a technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mould and then fused in a kiln.
Daum, the legendary glassmaker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colours. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.
Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.
How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum’s secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects.
