statement

“The idea of “transformation” is a key element in much of my work. This experimental approach has nothing to do with scientific curiosity; it is the “game” aspect that interests me. Crushing, immersing and recovering are the manipulations omnipresent in my work and most evident in these wearable pieces. In a previous series, I aimed to reflect the diversity of the floral world. By association, I started working with “zinc flowers”. This term refers to the patterns which appear at the surface of iron, coated with zinc. The gold rings are soaked in the resin and iron, which reinforces the wires and
welds both ends of the ring. The evocation of a flower merges with that of the roots. The two extreme parts form a junction in every sense. In this recent series I have used aluminium that “sets” cut stones. The stones are “planted” into the surface in a manner that permits them to be seen from every angle. The vertical arrangement evokes a particular point and location in space.”
