Cristine Darc

Santonnière in Barbentane (13)

The naive santon is the expression of absolute freedom in terms of modeling. Self-taught, Cristine shapes a universe composed of santons with clean lines, generous shapes and colors, delicious. A unique interpretation, imbued with gentleness and poetry ...

The absence of sculpture and colors on the faces is an open door to the imagination: they are smooth, unpainted, and everyone becomes free to project an emotion, or even a mood, onto the subjects.

The collection is enriched and renewed each year with new subjects, patiently produced in an artisanal way respecting the Provençal tradition.

The Grimaldi Historic Sites of Monaco Label was awarded in 2020 to Santons Cristine Darc!
