  • Desert Breeze
    This new original work by acclaimed international ceramic artist Pascale Girardin was created exclusively for the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas....

  • Girardin creates architectural installations made up of hundreds or even thousands of individually crafted pieces that come together in larger-than-life compositions. Whether suspended in mid-air, grazing a feature wall or floating in water, her works celebrate organic forms, subtly underscoring our relationship with the natural world. For Desert Breeze, she has created the illusion of wildflowers set adrift on a gentle wind, evoking the wild beauty of the Mojave Desert. Each of the nearly 500 florals, petals and leaves, which flow gracefully across the three walls of the grand stairwell, was created by hand in delicate white bone china so that no two pieces are alike. Desert Breeze is destined to become a focal point for the hotel and a timeless photographic backdrop from which to capture guests’ milestones and celebrations.

  • Ceramic artist Pascale Girardin, best known for her large-scale ceramic installations in luxury retail, restaurant and hospitality environments around the world, has debuted three new works of art at the recently opened Nobu Downtown in New York City. The unveiling of Nobu Downtown at 195 Broadway on April 6, 2017 was the city’s most anticipated restaurant opening of the year. It heralds a revival of fine dining in the financial district, while formalizing the closing of the Tribeca location, the original Japanese-Peruvian-fusion restaurant helmed by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Nobu Downtown also marks a repeat collaboration between Matsuhisa and David Rockwell, the prominent New York City designer who conceptualized the Tribeca locale nearly 25 years ago and has since designed Nobu spaces worldwide. 

    In partnership with Rockwell Group, Pascale Girardin produced three new works for the 12,500-square-foot space, influenced by traditional Japanese arts. The first is a duo of high-relief murals that grace the red Venetian plaster walls of the 187- seat downstairs dining room. The artworks, comprised of hundreds of individual textured black ceramic elements, appear from a distance as immense ink brushstrokes in the sumi-e style. 

    The second is a private-dining-room feature wall of glazed blocks and squares in Girardin’s signature cobalt blue. Reminiscent of boro patchwork textiles, it conceals a network of lighting fixtures that subtly set the piece aglow. The third artwork, displayed near the sake bar, is a collection of elegant rice-wine vessels, created by Girardin in honour of the Seto and Mino pottery-making traditions of south-central Japan. 

    “Between working with these great names and being able to pursue my passion for handcrafted ceramics inspired by Japanese arts and crafts, this project was a dream come true,” says Girardin. “David Rockwell is a designer who understands how artists engage with a space. His particular vision encourages us to stay true to our unique styles, which ensures that each project has a truly distinctive look and feel.”
