Sculpture, Nègrepelisse, FRANCE
«16 years ago I discovered porcelain painting; since then, I explore all the techniques of the arts of fire, modeling earth, laying enamels, slipware and painting on porcelain and faience.
My learning was done by lessons, books by specialized artists and by internships with artists.
My meeting with the sculptor of santon Conrad Paris in Céret (the creche of Sant Vicens) amazed me and for several years I was delighted to visit him and see him shape his little santons.
I trained myself in sculpture-modeling of terra cotta, and now, I create my little earthen characters too, sculpted and decorated entirely by hand.
I create only unique pieces, I do not want to use molds, my work is a little longer but I have the joy to create characters from my inspiration of the moment. »
