A graduate of the Duperre School of Applied Arts – Paris (textile section), Geraldine Gonzalez started her career as a shoe designer before becoming a sculptor.
Geraldine cultivates her secret garden, overflowing with tenderness and poetry, where she raises exquisite sculptures that seem to have a life of their own. Papier maché, cloth, crushed glass and pearls have gradually made way for crystal, which has allowed her to delicately play with further transparency and light. Each piece is unique, designed and then modelled in three dimension by hand. They capture light so well that they create an impression of weightlessness and magicality.
She has collaborated with Chanel, Christian Lacroix, Sonia Rykiel, Chantal Thomass, Baccarat, Van Cleef & Arpels, Givenchy, Kenzo, Hilton Mc Connico and Hermes.
Her works have been displayed at the Bon Marche, the Printemps Haussmann (Paris), chez Mint and Liberty (London), the John Derian Company and Bergdorf Goodman (New York).
Her artworks can be seen in Palace Hotel Merano (Italy) et in Imperial Pacific Resort Hotel (Saipan) as well as in the prestigious public collections of the Francisque-Mandet Museum in Rio, France and of the Decorative Arts Museum in Namur, Belgium.
