How does living in London influence your work?
London is a great place to be if you are an artist. I think London inspires me a lot because of all the amazing designers and artistic community working here. Also the freedom and possibilities that you have. I love the vibe in London, the atmosphere in the streets, the enthusiasm or when there is a ray of sunshine everyone is immediately out in a t-shirt! I love how dynamic the city is I guess, which is slightly different to the vibe in Paris.
Are there other artists who inform your work?
The main artists who inspire me the most are Grayson Perry, Hylton Nel and of course Matisse! But I am also inspired by a lot of upcoming and young designers such as Luke Edward Hall, Rose Electra, Isabella Cotier and Oscar Piccolo.
Do you sketch your forms before you begin to build or do the shapes come to you during the process?
The shape comes during the process usually, especially for the vases. For the plates, I use moulds that I design myself, so it is easier to control the final shape, but for a vase I always have a rough idea of what I want to do but it does sporadically change a lot during the design process. But I like this, I think it gives each one a unique story.
