born 1965, French

Christophe Côme works in the great tradition of artists and craftsmen. Raised in an artistic family, his uncle is a renown ceramicist and his sister is an acclaimed illustrator.

Côme studied under the French sculptor Louis Derbe where he learned the technique of casting bronze. Côme’s original creations were sculptures and jewelry, but towards the mid 1990s he started exploring furniture forms. After a visit to a glass studio in 1995, he began incorporating glass into his pieces. The addition of this medium revolutionized his work.

Côme’s inspiration for designs range from architectural wrought ironwork to contemporary sculpture to objects found in nature. Starting with conventional iron, he shapes and defines the forms through texture and oxidation producing distinctive finishes. Côme pairs these objects with industrial crystal and molded glass lenses that he often transforms through carving, melting, and slumping. The metamorphosis of this raw industrial material through Come’s stylistic vocabulary creates objects that transcend time.
