The spectacular rows of trees lining “the most beautiful avenue of the world” inspired the design of the finely engraved crystal leaves that adorn the Champs-Elysées bowl. As if swept up by the wind, the leaves whirl up towards the sky. The artist captures the beautiful essence of Paris.
Calling to mind René Lalique’s innovative spirit, Lalique breaks new ground with this piece as it incorporates the new and exclusive technique of double gathering. Fashioning this majestic bowl requires the hands of seven crystal masters who successively pull clear and green crystal from the clay pots that harmonize differently with each work of art. Thus, as in nature, each two-toned Champs-Elysées bowl is absolutely unique.
