Work with wood

Discovering the essence of each type of tree hidden under the bark is a journey full of poetry to the heart of wood. In a piece of pear wood, I see the twisted silhouette of the tree it once was, and the grain of the fruit that remains on my tongue... I pore over every aspect of the wood, I have to know it well and respect its uniqueness, source of inspiration and the work which ensues.

Joy in the studio:
a space dedicated to work, walls lined with tools, floor covered with fragrant wood shavings. Here I look for inspiration, I resume work in progress, I draw on longstanding savoir-faire and adapt processes to my objectives.

Joy of the senses: I love the different densities different woods have, the smell of each piece as soon as you begin with the plane, the manual sensations in sanding which gently brings out the grain. My eye and my hand tell me when the work is finished. A fine coat of varnish brings out the color.

Joy in working:
start with the nature of the piece of wood, bring out a vein, work with the natural curve, enhance the color in pairing it with another ... completely absorbed in the given piece of wood yet with an eye to the graphic transformation which is going to take place in the final assembly. I select the tool and know how to use it. The tool knows how to work the wood. It masters the wood like I master my idea, demanding and precise. I work with more than 300 different kinds of woods. I know their fiber, their smell. I often remember the garden that wood came from, or the person who gave it to me. I cut and assemble, wasting nothing, using the tiniest piece. I make tables, wall panels, jewelry, cases. Each piece is different, each is highly resistant due to the cross-fiber technique.
