Artist bears exhibit in a French castle

In April, I had the pleasure to exhibit my bears in a castle, for a whole weekend! The Château de Madame de Graffigny was the perfect place to hold an arts and crafts exhibition:

I had the chance to share a room with a maker whose universe completed mine… My bears were nearby tenth-size models created by Henry Bart and his wife! Our exhibition neighboors were very pleasant to talk with, we really enjoyed the two days we spent with them.

The bear fallen from the stars in Baccarat!


For the FIMA Baccarat, the bears fallen from the stars had their own marquee! We were selected to be part of the Village des métiers d’art (60 craftsmen). For the occasion, 15 bears travelled with me.

For 3 days, art craftsmen rubbed shoulders with art restorers and training centers. More than 40 art forms were represented durig the 3rd edition of the FIMA (International Festival of Art Forms): stone carver, industrial lamps maker, stained glass artist, doll maker… Satisfying all types of curious people! Between talented craftsmen and kind visitors, I once more made beautiful encounters.
