FORMAL PROFESSIONAL FORMATION


Self taught. E xperienced multiple techniques with glass on metal. The main objective is to obtain a picture with a clear, focused definition, a relief and which brings out the luminosity and the intensity of the glass powders.
All this by drawing with glass powder.

Through the years, I have established my own creative process : R & D of my own tools, perfecting my dexterity and obtaining the control of the firings.
