My workplace is also a resourceful place through calm, the natural environment, a caring presence. He is a bearer in my poetic projects.
It is a link between the past and the future.
My artistic approach …
It has been nourished since my childhood by the contact with nature, and enhanced by studying.
I wish, through a functional element that is the furniture, to put forward a singular and authentic artistic process.
The creation reflects the desire to combine functionality, ergonomics and aesthetics through a personalized object, specific to an identity.
It is about life itself.
In my mind, a piece of furniture is not only an object but the reflection of both a singularity and an interaction.
The first approach of a new creation is sculptural.
Thus the way I choose to assembly the different parts of the furniture is either almost invisible, or part of the design (console Griffée).
I use both old and contemporary techniques: straight tail or dovetail, tenon and mortise, wooden peg …
Aesthetics and resistance are the criteria.
Natural wood is my favorite material.
La Feuille de Bois wants to explore Life. The technique and refinement of wood veneers are the means used to carry on this philosophy.
