"Nature/nurture was for us a question of balance. With this piece we wanted to create a steady exterior that is protecting and guiding a more fragile interior. However this shell is not blocking its growth but providing it a space to develop in a safe environment."

About Laurent:
I have always loved wood, so it was only natural for me to study woodworking, woodcarving, cabinet making, furniture making, and design. I discovered woodturning from Jean-François Escoulen, and I knew it was how I wanted to make a living. So, in 2015, at age 20, I took the six-month woodturning class at the Escoulen School in Aiguines, France, with Jean-François and Yann Marot. Then, the school hired me as an assistant and translator for 3 years, gave me a studio and a lathe to practice my passion, and the possibility to meet many other artists and woodturners who now inspire my work. Today my workshop is in Toulon (South of France) where I continue my work, and also teach woodturning. In the meantime, I travel in France but also in Belgium and in America to teach my craft and do some demonstartions of my work.
