"This piece symbolizes for me the damages caused by climatic disturbances due to human activity, it was particularly inspired by the fires in Australia."

About Elisabeth:
In the work of turned and sculpted pieces it is the finesse on the verge of breaking that attracts me, that from wood we can create transparency, that it becomes light, as tissue paper or lace.
My work is guided by the observation of local woods, by the desire to work them green and as finely as possible so that they bring me by their natural deformations, an elegance and a poetry which I could not do without and so reveal the beauty of these often devalued essences.
