Not only does Jean paint visionary landscapes, he also works with his wife to make unusual furniture. This is a collaboration of his woodworking and designing skills and her finishing techniques to create furniture evoking images from fairy tales. The surprising shapes and curving lines achieve a subtle humor not often found in contemporary furniture. To see photos of more work, go to:
The candelabras are the sole creation of Jean. His skills as a plasterer and carpenter led him to explore a path of sculpted candelabras. Mixing different medias, these candelabras express a dialogue between art and craftsmanship. Each piece is original and shows a concentration of the qualities specific to Jean’s paintings and drawings: an outstanding palette of colors to catch memory and desire in movement…Please visit www.ojodelight.com for more photos of candelabras!
