The artist Guillaume Bottazzi has signed two works of three meters high close to Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde in Marseille.
The fuchsia, buttercup pink, azalea and rose rose tones of these glass works take us sinuously into a delightfully unreal universe. They create a dreamlike, enchanting space that evolves according to our imagination. These creations are an ode to joie de vivre.
They were made with enamels, a natural material composed of powdered minerals. The various minerals that make up the enamel are for example silica, feldspar, kaolin, metal oxides, titanium, copper carbonate, cobalt, iron oxide, manganese and tin.
These works are located close to Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde at 40 rue Docteur François Morucci and 2 rue Fénelon in the 6th arrondissement of Marseille.
