I'm a sculptor jeweller and now I do research about contemporary jewelry. I like to mix different materials into my works. I'm interested about the structure of things, particularly the way they are assembled.
Issue du domaine de la joaillerie, je chemine dans le milieu des métiers d’art depuis plus de 10 ans. Orientant parallèlement mes recherches en création depuis 8 ans en sculpture installative , je concilie actuellement mes deux passions en abordant la joaillerie par une approche sculpturale du bijou. À l’image des lieux qui accueillent mes sculptures, le corps de celui qui porte mes bijoux devient le support de l’œuvre tout comme les socles ou les murs sur lesquels ils sont appelés à être exposés.

Le matériau est à tout moment l’élément déclencheur de mes inspirations. Les structures que je conçois sont issues de recherches sur la matière et ses propriétés. La flexibilité, la transparence, la réflexion de la lumière ou son absorption par la coloration noire, sont les qualités que je recherche. Je détourne la fonction des matériaux industriels que j’emploie, allant jusqu’à évacuer la référence à leur utilité initiale. Je transforme ces objets du quotidien (salière, tuyau, moustiquaire, boudin de reliure...) en matière première. Pour ce faire, j’utilise des assemblages inspirés de techniques textiles, de l’architecture et du design.
