Jolivet is a glass designer and sculptor working mostly with metal elements and various glass material to create her art pieces. In 1982, she received her diploma in Applied Arts from the Verrerie-Cristallerie and a technical diploma (BTS) in industrial aesthetics in 1991. She describes her work as “double-sided: from a single piece of material requiring complex techniques to small editions made by molding and blowing…” She has won various awards, including the Lilliane Bettencourt Prize in 2001 for her “Marquise” work, which can be found in Parisian boutiques and galleries.
In 2006, the famous Venetian firm Salviati collaborated with Jolivet to design tableware, specifically bowls. She created a series (Pop, Vertigo, Spin) of five bowls using different techniques focusing mostly on traditional glass art; they translate all the spirit of a Venetian know-how in an urban and contemporary style.
Since the beginning of her career, she has had the opportunity to showcase her work at Maison & Objet and at exhibitions throughout Europe, including Tools Galerie, Paris – La Cité des Femmes – Paris and Maison Parisienne – Galerie Gstaad, Switzerland.
