The Vence Sconce is one of two limited-edition pieces designed by Athena Calderone and Simone Bodmer-Turner. Inspired by shells often found in old European churches, the piece is a decorative ode to the holy water basins at Chapelle du Rosarie —a small church in the hillside north of Nice that was the iconic artist Henri Matisse’s final project for his nurse, caretaker, and muse Sister Jacques-Marie.

About the Collaboration

United by friendship and an unending love of design, interior designer Athena Calderone and New York-based ceramic sculptor and designer Simone Bodmer-Turner joined forces to create something truly unique. The partnership proved to be a fruitful one, resulting in two one-of-a-kind pieces: the Vence Sconce and the Scalloped Side Table. Built in Bodmer-Turner’s signature clay, the two drew inspiration from the iconic squiggle—an enduring design motif with roots in ancient Rome, Incan South America, and even the mid-century work of Jean Royère and Axel Einar Hjorth. The resulting pieces function as both home decor and priceless abstract works of art.
