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.
The results of theses experimentations with moulded leather inspired me to continue in the search of new shapes and applications.
