Each piece of the ‘Poems-Objects’ series tells a story and speaks with poetic.
My approach was to make porcelain pieces without recreating new moulds , so using and transforming referenced models. Through this use of archives, I mobilise the historical heritage , know-how and tradition of the ‘Pierre Arcquié’ porcelain factory,in Limoges.
I recycled and combined anachronistically their porcelain mould library, and play with the know-how of this factory , its past and its history. I tried to update the traditional aesthetic and revival this porcelain factory.
I wanted to create a new object type at the intersection of craft and design : the poems – objects. They combine lyricism and minimalism, abstract and figurative , emotions and timelessness. I attach importance to the whiteness of the pieces, because it offers consistency, structure and timeless to the object.
“Reuse – redial – tell”.
Display design project
I worked in collaboration with Charles Petillon photgrapher.
Apart from the sculptural side of these little scenes, they can potentially be used as a desktop object (clipboard, mail carrier, rests pencil)
The scene is the space of representation of significant elements which tell a story.
The bust of Napoleon on his pedestal is a reflection on the presence of statues in the urban space : “the dream stones ” Mr. Agulhon as representation and embodiment of the national imagination. The figure of the butterfly symbolises the fragility and the rebirth.
The relationship between the elements of the play among themselves a hymn to freedom.
