Stéphanie Dupire, affiliated to the Maison des Artistes, is
specialised in mosaic art. Originally from the north of
France, she set up her workshop in the heart of the Périgord
Pourpre, fulfilling a childhood dream to live in the middle of
"My discovery of mosaics was a lucky accident and an
incredible revelation". Meeting a former Compagnon du Devoir
led to an initiation, passed down from master to pupil, of the
secrets of antique mosaics that she later combined with
self-taught modern techniques. This enables her to make very
precise works, even portraits for example.
Today Stéphanie mainly works to order. She creates anything
from abstract to figurative pieces, using a great variety of
motifs and styles.
All projects can be envisaged, beginning with consultation
with the client and a study of the project in question.
Her art takes into account the client's universe and desires,
the style of house or place which will accommodate the work,
as well the technical constraints imposed by the environment.
At the workshop, raw materials are brought to life by the way
in which they are used: size, format, a mix of opacity and
transparency, a contrast of colours, the use of relief to
catch the light ; the object may be used its natural brut
state, its final polished version, or in any or all stages in
between. Works of art sometimes veer naturally towards
sculpture or stained glass. Techniques are adapted to all
materials and shapes. There are no limits to what is possible
- other, perhaps, than the limits imposed by the imagination.
