My work explores the limits of the ceramic medium, whether in the form of vases, sculptures or installations.
I manipulate the forces and movements produced during firing, while adapting to specific kiln conditions (electric or gaz). I create juxtapositions of glazes and enamels on stoneware and porcelain, while also experimenting with the positioning of pieces within the kiln (by suspending, on a spindle, etc).
Using fire I reconstruct matter and volume.

My experimental work is at its height with the performance "Punk Raku" which play with the codes of traditional pottery while paying tribute to it.
