Paysages désertiques is a set of dishes that derives its reference in the natural textures of the arid and desert areas. Depending on how it is worked and cooked, the glazed clay can take the appearance of a very fine and uniform material, becoming extremely cracked. Made in various finishes from a very smooth to extremely cracked surface, these 5 plates each have a different function. Collaboration with Ecal and Vacheron Constantin, mentored by Formafantasma Studio and realized by Peter Fink These pieces were exhibit in Museo Bagatti Valsecchi during one week for the Salone del Mobile in Milano, nowadays is located in Vip area of the Suisse Pavillon in Expo till october 2015.
General dimensions: D40 X 14H cm
ATACAMA for NOV GALLERY
My understanding of luxury is one of research for a new aesthetic in artisanal production, where the past and the present meet as a result of designers and craftsmen motivated to share their expertise and knowledge in order to defy their limits. The point of departure for this project was a cracked surface that I discovered while visiting the workshop of the world renowned Swiss ceramist Peter Fink. Normally considered a flaw, I decided to highlight it. For the Atacama project, I applied the cracked texture on a vertical surface thereby pushing the limits of this technique further. These prototypes are a showcase for the precision of the craftsman’s technique controlling the size of cracks for each piece, thereby rendering every piece unique The fragile appearance of the technique bestows each piece with the invaluable notion of the ability of ceramic making to continually surprise us to this day.

BRAZILLE & MUÑOZ COLLECTION
This project consist of an experimentation with leather, using the medieval technique of « boiled leather ». Formed with water then hardened with beeswax, leather acquires new properties while conserving its characteristic look.
Using four moulded pieces I created my first collection of three vases in the context of the diploma project at l‘Ecal and mentored by Laura Bethan Wood and Xavier Perrenoud.
The results of theses experimentations with moulded leather inspired me to continue in the search of new shapes and applications.
The next step is to contact brands that produce leather waste, like furniture companies. Applying this technique I used for my first collection of vases, I want to build a self production scenario, the molds and tools to create new pieces.
LA MUSIQUE A TABLE
The prestigious restaurant Benoit Violier ask us to create a collection of dishes in collaboration with Bernardaud.
The story of my project is the relation between music and gastronomie, using the graphic elements we find in music notes to create a collection that gives visual movement to amazing food compositions.
