Atelier Saigon

Sculptural Bench in the Shape of a Crocodile

Vietnam, circa 2010

SCU 63

Description

Medium:  Papier mâché

Dimensions:  33.5 in high x 48 in wide x 15.75 in deep

Unique piece.

Born of the collaboration between a Parisian antiques dealer and a rural Vietnamese artists' community, these sculptural furniture pieces with animal motifs are made with a newly created, sturdy mixture of papier mâché. Rather than using fiberglass, which is harmful to both artisan and environment, the artists of Atelier Saigon have created a natural material to match the subject. Handmade without the use of a mold.
