What brought you to porcelain?
The porcelain sculptures were born out of a desire to see my drawings transformed into sculptures. I was trained by a ceramicist with whom I experimented the different possibilities of expressing myself with clay, to finally discover porcelain, which I have never left.
How long does a piece take you to create?
I would say a lifetime, but more seriously between three hours and a week depending on the work. My latest pieces are the result of research into the materials, textures, and the traces or scars that personalise us and shape us. It’s about observing our universe and our own nature.

What do you like most about your work?
When the idea of a piece is growing, becoming. When the work becomes urgent, this impatience is a magical moment, alone in front of this wet loaf of clay full of possibilities. My hands, my fingers, my arms, as if remote-controlled, assemble my piece, shape it.
What do people not know about your craft?
I think people don't realise how much of who I am is in my pieces. They don't know how well the porcelain and I know each other; it's as alive as I am and sometimes has a bad temper. If I don't respect it, it's going to do what it wants, it is an exchange.
