(Enameled metals artist / 七宝工芸作家)
Marie-Hélène Soyer is enameller on metals, she is a member of Grands Ateliers de France. She created Emaux-Métaux workshop in 2004.
She develops a vocabulary of matter by playing on three elements:
Metal, enamel and cooking.
Emaux-Métaux workshop works in different fields as the decoration, the furniture, the architecture or the design.
The workshop develops an aesthetic that is as much linked to the constraints of the order as to the dreamlike and poetic universe of Marie-Hélène Soyer.
