Wood turner, all my work is based on the beauty of wood. I mainly use precious roots and species from the South of France.


There is a correspondence between all the species living on earth. You can find animal or mineral shapes in roots and vegetable forms, and in stones or bones. We, humans, are linked with all things growing on earth.


This is what I feel when I make my sculptures. These creationsappear to be alive, because I first turn growingforms, like flower shapes. I reproduce the development of a flower or all circular structures of the universe.
