"First of all, the pleasure of discovery when the stone challenges me with its natural form, its structure, its movement, its lines. Then it is necessary to sit it down, to find its balance which will reveal it and give it all its presence. To humanise it by introducing into this material an idea, a trace, which will be translated by an architecture of light: glass, playing with the mineral, opacity and transparency.
