Sophie et Guillaume Le Penher.
Sophie and Guillaume Le Penher started their professional activity within the photography and the cabinet making fields. Then they both graduated at the Cerfav and developed their expertise as glass sculptors in their own studio from 2004 on.
Sophie and Guillaume describe their glass sculptor activity as follows : ". Our work is inspired by Nature but also by Architecture. We feel it as a journey in a romantic Oriental park, reflecting our harmony and the love of materials such as rare woods and cast glass... » Starting from a Western culture, very much found of the Chinese culture and people, through their glass sculptures Sophie and Guillaume Le Penher invite the viewers to come across the bridge between the Western and Oriental civilization.
