Physicist lost to science by twisted paths, between business and computers, I've ended-up, after many years, by falling head-first into clay. . With great pleasure... it smells so good!

Since then, clay transforms in my hands, often unwillingly, sometimes docile, according to the day and my state of mind.
Every day in the workshop,the simplest tasks and sometimes intense reflection fill up the time.

In front of the wood-fired kiln, I love the moments of concentration, contemplation and conviviality. And sometimes, I can feel a pure emotion when the kiln is opened...

So the clay starts a new life..
