Cristine Darc

Santonniere in Barbentane

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

The absence of sculpture and color 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 manner while respecting Provençal tradition.

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