Bardet (Guillaume)

Guillaume Bardet began to draw as a child... an activity that he continues to this day. On paper tablecloths, newspapers, serviettes, sketch pads. Guillaume Bardet experiments with forms. Just as Guillaume Bardet used to back in Rouen, where he was born in 1971 and where he lived until the age of 15. After moving to Paris, Guillaume Bardet continued to draw, was extremely bored at school, took clay modelling classes and dreamed of quitting high school to devote himself to his true passion. Guillaume Bardet was less than impressed with his first year at architecture school. But when he enrolled at the École supérieure des Arts décoratifs (Graduate school of decorative arts) in1993, Guillaume Bardet knew that he had found his true niche. Once the bad boy of the class, Guillaume Bardet was now one of the top students. And with good reason: Guillaume Bardet was fascinated by and took delight in everything. It was here than Guillaume Bardet met Jean-Marie Massaud with whom he began to collaborate very soon after leaving the École supérieure. Then Guillaume Bardet decided to become self employed. The Académie de France scholarship in Rome, which Guillaume Bardet won in 2002, enabled him to develop his first major project entitled "Mobilier immobile", nine pieces in marble – in itself out of the ordinary – exhibiting these at the galerie Yves Gastou on his return from the Villa Médicis. While continuing to design furniture, Guillaume Bardet began to work on interior design projects and on urban furniture. In 2005 Guillaume Bardet began to teach, passing on his wealth of experience as project director at the École nationale supérieure de création industrielle de Paris (Ensci). In 2007, Guillaume Bardet left the French capital, settling with his wife and son in the Drôme region, where he had spent his childhood holidays. For many years Guillaume Bardet had been aware that one day he would come back to clay, a material he has always enjoyed working with so much. And this is how he finally found the time to throw himself into this race against the clock that will become "Recording the Days"... a true creative challenge. Two years have gone by, 365 pieces have been created. Guillaume Bardet was born in 1971 in Rouen (France). He lives and works in Dieulefit in the Drôme area of France. Website:
