Christophe Côme works in the great tradition of artists and craftsmen. Raised in an artistic family, his uncle is a renown ceramicist and his sister is an acclaimed illustrator. Côme studied under the French sculptor Louis Derbe where he learned the technique of casting bronze. Côme’s original creations were sculptures and jewelry, but towards the mid 1990s he started exploring furniture forms. After a visit to a glass studio in 1995, he began incorporating glass into his pieces. The addition of this medium revolutionized his work.
