At this time (2023), the works presented here have for the most part been modeled in 2018, in a troglodyte cellar, in Dieulefit (Drôme, France), and are the result of an initial field of research and modeling experiments. clay, enamelling and high temperature wood firing (1000-1300°C), self-taught.
For various reasons and after several adventures/moves, they were only able to see their completion in 2020/2022, through, finally, the construction of a first wood kiln.
Beyond the failures which turn out to be, in the end, only the support of a certain way, patience feeds the inner fire by overlapping the seasons… This first cycle of creations will have benefited from 21 wood firings, each firing will have lasted between 16 and 36 hours in a row, listening to the flames, day and night, for three years.
This results in a certain conjugation of several space-time… While harnessed to the surprise of the result one will persist in going through these « trials », the Fire, sublimating the ordinary or reducing it to significant fragments, will give to the determined neophyte the last word of a sentence which seems – happy real in the dream! – never to have an end…
