Salome Cousseau Mini Sculpture
The embodiment of elegance, artist Salome Cousseau's cherry wood sculpture is topped with solid brass accents and stitched with garnets held in place by goldplated pins. Handcrafted of French materials; the richly grained Merisier wood comes from trees that fell during a 1999 storm in France's Cognac region. Born in the Loire Valley, Salome Cousseau studied decorative arts and fashion design in Paris. As the daughter of a cabinetmaker, she grew up surrounded by wood, making it only natural that this artist shows such an innate understanding of this complex element.
