Girardin stands beneath
her Desert Breeze
installation at the Four
Seasons Hotel Las Vegas

Pascale Girardin had been working in ceramics
for nearly two decades, crafting dishware for the
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' gift shop and
the posh Holt Renfrew department store, among
others, when she was commissioned to work
on her first hospitality project-a 20-by-20-foot
curved 3D wall mural at the Fin restaurant
inside the Mirage in Las Vegas. The striking
mosaic of overlapping glazed stoneware in soft
green and yellow tones for the Yabu Pushelbergdesigned space laid the groundwork for a lasting
relationship with the Toronto and New Yorkbased firm, and set the Montreal ceramicist on
a new hospitality track-a welcome detour. "I
like the energy of the large-scale pieces," she
notes. When finished, "The excitement has
that grandiose feeling about it. I feel like I'm
swimming in it."

Since that project in 2005, Girardin has
thrived by pursuing longterm relationships
with high-end clients who respect the
arduous and slow process of working with
ceramics, which can take up to 30 months
from start to finish. Her portfolio includes
projects like the Four Seasons Hotel Las
Vegas, where she was recently brought in by
the in-house design team and Art Advisory to
produce the Desert Breeze installation-an
illusion of wildflowers blowing gently in the
wind with nearly 500 florals, petals, and
leaves handmade from white bone china
inspired by those found in the Mojave Desert.
Set as the backdrop to the lobby's grand
staircase, the goal was for it "to become a
destination for celebration of life passages,"
she says.

In March, she debuted three murals
in Rockwell Group's stylish redo of the
Nobu Downtown in New York, including a
showstopping duo of high-relief murals in the
main seating area, comprising 3,500 individual
ceramic pieces that resemble briquettes of
charred wood. It was a "celebration of the
handcrafted artwork," she says. "We don't
always have clients who are as enthralled
with ceramics the way we are, but this was
a perfect fit."
With nearly 20 projects on the boards,
Girardin is on something of a personal journey
as well, pursuing her master's in fine arts at the
University of Quebec in Montreal, while also
exploring performance art through ceramics.
She wonders: "Can the process be the art itself,
rather than the finished product?"
