Some of my work:

A dressing table of unique design, whose name is “Demoiselle”:
Realised in a noble wood, decorated with gold leaf, precious stones and leather, this piece will be accompanied with a matching stool. The ‘ensemble’ will push to the extreme, elegance and harmony. Like the famous chest of drawers by André Groult, the design of this dressing table shows an anthropomorphic interpretation. The feminine shapes and movement of the lines give the piece an allure of a dancer. Amongst the many techniques employed, sculpting will also play its part. The materials, colors and textures enrich and complete the ‘Demoiselle’. Its proportions have not been left to chance but in fact correspond to the Golden Mean Number.
In order to accomplish this piece, 6 to 7 months of work will be needed with also the know-how of other artisans of art (gilder, jeweler, mirrored, leather worker, engraver, locksmith…)
A symbolic work
Craftsmen in the artistic world are so often held back in their creativity by lack of funds and or materials. Thus we find that the evolution and artistic progression in general is slowed down. During the time my business has been running I have been obliged to make choices that have not been easy. But each time, I remember that I have chosen this artistic profession because of my passion to create and innovate. With this project, I wish to counter what seems to be inevitable for many artists and encourage the talents of today to experience their art in excess of these limits.
Obstacles: are they not there to be overcome?

The drawing :
To protect this project until its realisation, no drawings will be shown to the public. But you can see the reactions of 3 professionals I have shown my designs to on the video.

A multi-faceted project:
By its media and participation in awards and competitions, this piece would allow the recognition and growth of my business. A true professional springboard, it can represent my skills at one of the largest international exhibitions such as the Grand Palais in Paris at the Salon Revelation. Finally, combine the know-how on the same object in order to boost Art and evolve technical craftsmanship.
Start of production planned: January 2015.
