Biography

Born on April 28, 1913, in Paris, Vautrin grew up in an environment steeped in artistic flair, with her father being a master goldsmith. She exhibited a precocious talent and an affinity for crafting intricate designs from a young age. This innate passion led her to pursue studies at the École des Arts Appliqués, where she honed her skills and developed her signature aesthetic that would later define her career.

Vautrin's artistic development was marked by her early foray into the world of fashion, where she worked as a designer of costume jewellery. By the late 1930s, she had established her own workshop, where she began to experiment with a range of materials, most notably bronze. Vautrin created small objects, mirrors, and buttons, imbuing them with a sense of poetry and enchantment that quickly garnered attention from discerning collectors and connoisseurs.


The post-war period was a significant time for Vautrin, as she expanded her repertoire to include larger objects such as boxes, mirrors, and furniture. Her work from this period is characterised by intricate designs, often incorporating elements of myth and symbolism, and the use of gilt bronze – a medium she mastered and which became synonymous with her name. She developed an innovative technique called Talosel, which involved inlaying celluloid with mirrors, creating a mesmerising, reflective quality that became a hallmark of her work.

Throughout her career, Vautrin's art was celebrated in numerous exhibitions, both in her native France and internationally. Her pieces were admired not only for their artistic merit but also for their craftsmanship and innovation. She participated in the prestigious Salon des Artistes Décorateurs and also presented her work at the Salon des Arts Ménagers, where her distinctive style won her accolades and a devoted following.

Vautrin's legacy is one of poetic imagination and technical prowess. Her work continues to influence contemporary designers and remains highly sought after by collectors. Her contribution to the decorative arts is significant, with her pieces held in the collections of major museums and appreciated by those who seek the magical and the exquisite in art. Vautrin passed away in 1997, leaving behind a body of work that continues to enchant and inspire, a testament to her visionary spirit and artistic mastery.
