Pascal Girardin is a Canadian artist whose work is rooted in visual art, design, and craft, ranging from functional ware to public art and large-scale installations. Originally trained as a painter, she has contributed to the dynamism of contemporary ceramics by exploring and investing spaces with her architectural installations. Whether suspended in mid-air, grazing a wall or floating in water, her works evoke nature’s omnipresence and organic structure, subtly underlying our fundamental relationship with the world we live in.

Pascal is currently working on a commission for the Four Seasons Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. The piece is expected to be installed end of July 2017.
