About the Author
Since Laurence Bonnet was little she spent most of her time making, sewing, knitting, drawing ... she never stops creating! Her creations speak of childhood, of the difficulty of being small, of the power that small things have to reassure and make the world around them sweeter. She puts a lot of her own childhood memories into her work. Each of the objects that she makes is an invitation to imagination and dreaming, a way of remembering the child that we were, and of celebrating the one we remain for a little while.
