Petra Werlé

The daughter of a sailor, Petra Werlé was born in Strasbourg and spent her first years between Basel and Rotterdam on the family boat. At the age of twenty, she began sculpting her first characters in bread crumbs and has devoted herself to this singular art ever since. In 1997, she decided to move to the Paris region.

If the main material of his work is bread, it nevertheless offers itself a parenthesis with Natural History (s) and The Nature of Things consisting of elements such as butterflies, beetles, bird feathers, shells, flowers and dried mosses…

Parent closed, since 2010 she continues tirelessly and passionately to work only bread to give to see new worlds.
