Fall Winter 2017 2018 collection:
I had to found my place. Creation is an emergency; then I learnt the work on glass with blowlamp. I get this way the « Ateliers d’Arts de France » label in 2014. I work the melting glass, giving its forms, colors and reflections because of a repetitive movement, for mastering its viscous and solid condition. To me it’s similar to a violinist, who has no reference point and a total freedom… In order to respect this art, I decided to present my pieces in a casket who represents in the same time my privacy. With the work of metaled laiton, I created more demanding pieces. By sawing, bending, welding the metal, the glass takes another dimension. The laiton meshes are set one by one, like a fabric, allowing the parures to take all the forms and dimensions. The metal engravings give an antique look of which I’m very fond… I have no limit et try every technique and art work in order to show the beauty of the art glasswork, like the « plumasserie » (work with feathers), very present in my works.
I LOVE this freedom of speech! So many years for reaching it… I am autodidact since my childhood; the thirst of discovering, the curiosity brought to me so many artistic experiences, my first kind of intimate expression. I admire so much the perfection of masterpieces, the transcendence of freedom of speech, the federative beauty…
A LITTLE BIT like a rebirth, and also like a coherent continuation, my life is an initiation who gave me my identity: art glassworker and jeweler.
Like MANY of my peers, my goal is to discover the world, to show my vision of the beauty and of the poetry through my creations. This is an introspection, and also a free interpretation of the world around.
IN THIS WILD life, as much tremendous as competitive, my work finds its place in the duration, my feelings take their time, the time for making sense… When it’s finished, my work generally took several hundred hours…
NOT AT ALL at the end of this introspection, I use my personal memories, the impressions of my childhood, using the codes of the past, visiting them again, interpreting them again, for giving them a modernity, and, I hope, an everlasting life.
Beauty and eternity are the meaning of my work. From them is born the collection
