This round table provides an overview of artistic glass work in France today. Isabelle Reiher introduces us to Marseille's Cirva (Centre international de recherche sur le verre et les arts plastiques). Designer Christian Ghion, who has worked with the Daum glassworks and the master glassmakers of Murano, talks about his collaboration with artisans in the creation of his pieces. Similarly, artist Marie Ducaté presents her work and approach to glass.


Isabelle Reiher Born in Montreal, Quebec in 1969. After studying law at the Université de Montréal, she became a member of the Quebec Bar in 1991 and practiced law for several years. She moved to Paris in 1996 to study art history at the Université Paris 1 - Panthéon Sorbonne, where she obtained a master's degree in contemporary art under the supervision of Michel Poivert. In 2000, she graduated in heritage administration and conservation from the Institut National du Patrimoine. After five years (2002/2005) in charge of contemporary art at the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Regional Council's Department of Culture, she became deputy director of the Le Parc Saint-Léger art center in Burgundy. Since 2010, she has directed the Centre international de recherche sur le verre et les arts plastiques in Marseille, an art center and research and production center of excellence for international artists and designers.

Christian Ghion Born in 1958 in Montmorency/France, Christian Ghion decided to study design after law school. In 1987, he graduated from the ECM (Étude et Création de Mobilier) program at the Charenton School of Architecture. In 1989, Christian founded his own design studio in partnership with Patrick Nadeau, with whom he has undertaken numerous projects. In 1998, he decided to embark on his own adventure. He taught for several years at the École d'Art et de Design in Saint-Étienne, the ESAD in Reims and the École des Beaux-Arts in Rennes. He has received several awards and distinctions, and was made a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres in 2006. He is recognized in particular for his work with such renowned names as Daum, Alessi, Ligne Roset, Forge de Laguiole, Salviati, Cappellini, Arthur Bonnet, Christofle and Nespresso, as well as for his work on the restaurants of celebrated chef Pierre Gagnaire.

Marie Ducaté Born in Lille in 1954, Marie Ducaté holds a DNSEP from the École des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence. She lives and works in Marseille. Fundamentally a painter, Marie Ducaté has progressively moved beyond the canvas to embrace all the forms, techniques and media of an expanded pictoriality, abolishing the divides between painting and sculpture, figuration and abstraction, art and applied art. Referring to historical figures such as Annie Albers, Sonia Delaunay and the Blooms Bury Group, she is attentive to the technical, theoretical and political concerns of Arts & Crafts. Her work is exhibited in numerous museums, art centers and galleries in France and abroad. She worked at CIRVA (Centre international de recherche sur le verre et les arts plastiques, Marseille) from 1985 to 2003. She has created several works in public spaces, in Marseille, Saint-Fons, Lyon and Houston. Her work can be found in public and private collections (FRAC Languedoc-Roussillon, FRAC Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur, Institut d'Art Contemporain, Musée Fodor in Amsterdam, Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain, Houston MFAH, municipal collections in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Martigues, Béthune, Narbonne).
