Last spring, when Remodelista editor Alexa was visiting the home of French ceramicist Cécile Daladier, a delicate, decorated loop of wire in the corner of the studio caught her eye. It was a garland Daladier made by adding flecks of tiny fabric scraps to a utilitarian loop of wire from the hardware store.
Much like Daladier’s tree branch decorated in pieces of plastic as a political statement about refuse and trees in Paris, the wire garland is her way of turning scraps into art, which Alexa believes is the sign of a true artist.
