Sèvres - cité de la céramique
Grigris “Roly-poly” figures, These gris-gris, or talismans, from Sèvres, offer an opportunity to play with porcelain’s fragility and weightlessness. Miniature vases carefully hand thrown and decorated, then mounted upon solid metal hemispheres. This project granted the opportunity to create a link between the traditional methods of Sèvres and more contemporary techniques. Indeed, even though these vases are hand thrown, the decorative elements were created using a water jet programmed according to digitized designs.

CIRVA International Research Center on Glass and Arts
Parade is a vase that may be set down, or also hung on a wall. Different elements are articulated, through the use of nylon screws, around a central, matte-finish glass. CIRVA’s expertise allows for the use of a material which is so close to the colour of the Nylon, that one might think that the screws are made out of glass.

kreo Gallery
Miroirs These mirrors employ a plastic, within the creation of their frames, which is normally used for making the frames for spectacles. This bulk-stained plastic imitates horn or tortoiseshell. Appropriated and thus re-employed for a large object, it surprises as a result of its equally organic and totally synthetic appearance.

Quetzalcoatl
Quetzalcoatl is a project created for Kvadrat, a Danish fabrics manufacturer. It offers an experimentation around the sculptural features of hammocks, inasmuch as they are suspended objects. In order to accomplish this, the fabric of which it is made is not treated as a two-dimensional surface, but as a three dimensional volume. A thousand fabric tubes are combined in order to give it its final shape. A traditional hammock is thus transformed into a thick pelt which is both welcoming and protective.
