Juliette Leperlier did not arrive at glass paste by chance, we can speak of heritage, of family tradition. Her great-grandfather François Décorchemont developed this technique of lost wax casting, then his father Etienne Leperlier and his uncle Antoine continued research on this material, the medium of their art. She had, so to speak, all the elements in hand to continue this artistic adventure. But she didn't want it to be the material that chose her, but on the contrary that it was she who decided to tame it.

She therefore studied applied arts in sculpture at ENSAAMA (Olivier de Serres in Paris), then a Master of Plastic Arts at the Sorbonne to discover other techniques, other materials and thus move away of family heritage.

At the end of her studies, she chose not to "return" to glass paste, but to begin a new exploration of matter, pushing back the limits of creation.

In 2014, she took over her father's workshop, to devote herself fully to her creation and became the winner of the regional prize of the Ateliers d'Art de France.

Her creations are inspired by organic shapes, taken from nature, characterized by games of opacity and transparency.

Her sculptures are generally simple shapes, close to abstraction. She likes curves more than right angles, strives to find consistency between form and material in her works.
