The shapes and repeated patterns of nature remind us of the cycle of life and rebirth. I would like to create works that foreshadow change by reflecting on the allegory of the forest.
I would like to create works that foreshadow change.

My works are mainly made using the pâte de verre technique, using an electric furnace. I make a prototype out of clay, remove the plaster
After the clay is scraped out, the space is filled with glass powder or grains and fired in an electric furnace.
The glass is transformed by the heat. I think I continue my daily work in order to see these sometimes unpredictable changes.
