Space planner, interior architect, cabinetmaker… I have always shaped and sculpted the wood. In 2004, I decided to follow a natural inspiration deeply anchered inside myself for a long time. I opened a workshop and started to sculpt full time. I was awarded the “Jeunes Créateurs” prize (Young Designers Award ), created by Ateliers d’Art de France (French craft professionals federation) in 2005.
“To respect the age of the tree, observe what it is made of, listen to its history, shape its fiber, sculpt its instinct, to be in the instant…”
I have tamed the language of the fire, and worked on the shapes and textures of the wood. Gross and primitive art, nomad cultures, archeology, nature, energy and fluidity of shapes, are the inspiration for my creations and designs.
The simple fact of observing a spiece, a wood, tells me a lot about the life of the tree. It is my pleasure to share with you the story that trees are telling me.
