Anne Ghez has always been interested in creation and materials. At the age of 17, she developed her own line of jewelry and quickly caught the attention of big names in fashion. Her jewelry was then sold at Givenchy, Lanvin, Michel Klein, and Hanaé Mori. For over 30 years, Anne explored this world and developed her business.
In 2017, she decided to refocus on her primary passion, art and creation. She wanted to explore new materials, particularly wood, and give a second life to the jewelry she had accumulated over the years. Inspired by the compressions of César, she created her first pieces in 2020 and chose to combine her jewelry with wood, plexiglass, and resin.
She then began to develop her sculpture work by combining the raw and primitive side of wood with the preciousness and sophistication of jewelry. A dialogue is created between the authentic and the precious, giving new dimensions to these materials. The wood is selected for its veins, color, strength, and warmth. The artist shapes it into sensual forms and embeds precious jewelry to enhance the created piece.
The artist is now exploring bronze and combining it like a jewel with her wooden sculptures.
