My wooden " Nuage" is speaking about childhood, lying in the grass, our imaginations did the rest. Through the window of our imaginary, a ball of steam can take the shape of many elements.

I am a woodturner, a crafstman. Constantly in search of simplicity, my creative work is marked by tight curves, simple shapes and thin textures. I am listening for the emotion provoked by the simple curves that daily nurture my eyes. I really believe that curve IS an emotion. My imagination is full of rope textures, organic shapes, pieces sometimes carved, often turned. My work is speaking about the tree. That's why I like the distortion of green wood after drying, a sort of second life. I can expect it but I can't master this movement. It fascinates me. My hand does the main work, of course, but first comes the tree: its history and when the sap was still running through its veins.
