Muriel and François-Xavier Guyot
The pieces are carved and shaped by hand from hard materials. Without molding, they create a material based on leaves and blocks. After machining, sanding and polishing, the shape becomes transparent. The line of the jewel then proposes a trajectory to the light.
The material, is plexiglass, created with great ideas, hard work and virtuoso fingers. François-Xavier and Murielle Guyot have been solicited by Courrèges, Paco Rabane, Mugler, the Réunion des Musées Nationaux and even the Baccarat crystal factory! Francois-Xavier, was born in Vichy, and Murielle Guyot in Mende (Auvergne). Their encounter, like their journey, took a winding route. “They met in the south of France, where they were doing a school of horticulture. Today, their alliance for creation is bearing fruit. They refine their creations, work on the material. they cut geometric shapes, sculpt them in three dimensions, seam, polish, heat, glue, superimpose plates, brass, copper or steel meshes.
