Agnes Boiste
The Stuff of Fairy Tales
France

 This rounded abode with its coquettish roof seems to be breathing with life from Mother Earth.  Some will see in this stable a giant mushroom home of fairies and dwarfs.  The charming little characters are like jewels spilling from a treasure trough.  Agnes Boisteís ceramic figures are Santons in their own right.  They donít make a sociological or cultural statement, but they are the stuff of childrenís dreams and fairy tales.  There is a part of Christmas which can be captured only in fairy tales and dreams.
