Empreintes de temps

“Print of time”
It looks like a piece of amber that has trapped an air bubble or an insect, a piece from our present era.

With the “Empreintes de Temps” series, starting in 2019, my creative approach focuses on the creation of new glass materials, to achieve contrasting textures, intimate finesse and a certain opaque minerality for the outer band surrounding the pieces.

On the other hand, each piece in the series was conceived as a section of the “tree of time”, readable like a lumberjack’s cup, revealing mysterious, fragile and luminous interiors.
I believe that for artists and craftsmen, time is the material of the work. It includes the long experience needed to acquire mastery and language, the time it takes to design and manufacture a finished piece. The time of the work’s life too, a function of the chance of destinations and the durability of materials, making it possible to pass on an impulse, an aesthetic, a technical and philosophical thought: so many tributes to those of the past, so many messages destined for those of the present and the future. In all these ways, time permeates the work, bringing it, as it were, into the categories of the living.
