What does well made mean to you?
That is a big question! A small defect or deformation can give your work a more humane touch. I learned a lot about this in Japan, a country that I have a special bond with since I participated in a Franco-Japanese exhibition.
What was a memorable moment in your professional life?
The moment when I found myself in a room in Kyoto, at a large table on which 30 tea ceremony bowls of mine were lined up together with their wooden boxes. I had to sign them all by hand, one by one. That was a very emotional moment.
What are your sources of inspiration?
Nature in all its forms, but water in particular. The changing colours of the sea fascinate me and are very present in my work, which is predominantly blue, grey and turquoise. I also get inspired in museums by the shapes of the work of previous generations.
Do you train apprentices?
Not yet, I still have too much experimenting to do, but one day I want to pass on what I have learned from my predecessors. I find it natural to give to others what was given to me, even if this is above all a profession of individual research and personal experience.
