Places to see art glass in Paris?

My wife is a glass artist. She works in stained, fused, and cast glass, and shows her pieces in galleries in the North West. We both like to check out the works of cutting-edge (not a pun) glass artists when we travel. We will be in Paris in October and we would like to visit galleries and/or workshops that show/sell high end work. We will also be in Italy, and will of course look at the work in Murano -- but that is mostly blown glass, of less interest to us.

I have looked through the Pages Jaunes, but they are not much help. Does anyone have suggestions?

Nukesafe, sorry I can't help you there, but as another art glass enthusiast, has your wife's work been offered at either Earthenworks in PT and LaConner or at the Real Mother Goose in Portland?

BTilke,

No, she has shown at neither of those galleries. She is currently exclusively at the Scott Milo Gallery in Anacortes. Her name is Annette Tamm, if you are in town and want to see her stuff.

She did show for awhile in a place in La Connor, but that gallery folded.

Sigh--

Galerie d'Amon
(tel 01 43 26 96 60, metro Saint Sulpice, 28 place Saint Sulpice, 6e). This shop specialises in modern glass and jewellery with a medieval twist. It's open 11am to 6.45pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

Don't let the medieval part put you off. It's not.

Thank you MariaCallas! That was just the kind of information I was looking for. I should guess, with your screen name, you would be knowedgeable in the arts.

I Googled the gallery, and found lots of references to artist's exhibitions there, but could not seem to find the web site. Also, I tried to look up the place on Pages Jaunes -- but came up blank. I know I got the name right, and used the correct address. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
