The projectThe fondation stone of this project is for me to start a new activity, creating 100 pieces collections of my works and in order to be able to do it, I need your financial support and in return you will benefit a 50% price reduction during the 40 days presentation on the Kisskissbankbank site. Prices will then return to their true value on the creators, luxury market with that unique french "savoir vivre" fragrance and with the opening of this new activity : "La beauté est fragile par Jean GAZDAC". The choice of this peculiar material and the name of the brand is coming from a long quest since my first sculpture exhibition "Femmes fantastiques" in october 1980, ... There followed a long journey of discoveries, meetings and with so many failures but which permitted to get each time a bit further. After pealing away every unnecessary skin, at last you get to what is primary to me : fragility, which concern every one of us. It is vital to respect this sensitivity, to respect others, specially in this terrible period with its indiscriminate attacks.We must restore meaning to meaning. For me, the real precious material is this blue crystal paste because it permits so many variations in transparency, intensity of the ccolour according to the thickness of the piece. It brings this little difference who can sublime the object, making iy fragile and extraordinary. The other mareials are often there to highlight it using their inherent beauties. I often work with my "accomplices" for the wood, the other metals, engravings, leather goods, phoyography, micromechanic and even another glass artist, ... I am and always remain in debt yo yhem for sharing time, skills which some are incredibble and ... for supporting me. I am an sculpturing artist, registered to La Maison des Artistes and Ateliers d'Art de France. I create my works in blue crystal paste using my not very big kilns and I use also a small foundry in my workshop.
My original pieces made undermy artist status can be seen on my site ; www.gazdac.com or www.jeangazdac.com.
The brand "La beauré est fragile" was registerd in february 2016. It will have its own website where you will find the different collections and soon the future ones already trying to get out my head and become real.
I reinvent objects that belongs to our rich heritage like this champagne fountain, used some time near the end of 19 hundreds and start of the 20th century, usng blue crystal paste, sterling silver, ebony and stainless steel food quality. To go with is a "coup de poing de vigneron", winemaker punch to pierce tje metal cap and do the first hole. There too, blue crystal paste, sterling silver, ebony and stainless steel food quality fot the tip.
