Solid… Liquid… Glass... my work is the magical transformation of a material that has no ordered structure—like water—that allows itself to be penetrated and illuminated by light. Glass is the most exquisite way to give material form to little dreams that can be cherished and worn close to the body, while exploring its ever-changing beauty in variable light settings.
ABOUT MY WORK
I choose to work specifically with Murano glass (famous for its purity of color) because of its bright and deep hues. My inspiration comes primarily from nature, but also from dream-like visions, sensations, or memories from travels to lands of ice and fire such as Iceland, the Azores or Africa.
My atelier is in rural Bretagne, France, nestled between wheat and corn fields. There I can take the time to reconnect with the essence of my work: the act of creation, the wonder and risk of experience, the idea of flirting with beauty and light, the love of nature, and everything that gives my work energy and meaning.
