The Tao says that what is important in a pot is not the clay, but the empty space inside. It is the same with a basket, or a house with its rooms, windows and doors.
I have always been celebrating the space in my work : space means wind, energy, light, spirit...
This little piece just to celebrate the tree and its wedding with wind, rain and sun. All my work is based on the beauty of wood.

I mainly use precious roots and species from the South of France.

There is a correspondence between all the species living on earth. You can find animal or mineral shapes in roots and vegetable forms, and in stone or bones. We humans are linked with all things growing on the earth.

This is what I feel when I make my sculptures. These creatures seem to be alive, because I first turn growing shapes, like flower shapes. I reproduce the expansion of a flower or all circular structures of the universe.

The birth of these objects is the incarnation of a dream.
