How did you start your life in arts and crafts?
I received a well-rounded education at the Royal College of Arts and at the Central Saint Martins’ School but I also bring along my family culture, like the fascination for machinery that I owe to the time spent in the workshop of my grandfather, who was an engineer.
What is your source of inspiration?
My inspirations are quite common for a maker: nature, light, the possibility to express movement. My goal is to capture movement somehow and I do that by embedding the creative process in the final piece in a natural way.

How do you achieve that?
I master different techniques, which are specific to both glass and ceramic working, mixing them in the different stages of creation. Gestures are completed by the use of industrial machinery and the last ingredient is chance, which adds an element of surprise.
Are your creations for everyday use?
Even though I craft simple everyday objects, like cups and glasses, my objects are mostly for display and they are sold in galleries as artworks, but I also create special series by request, for a tableware brand and for a restaurant.
