Stained glass Studio


This work was carried out within the framework of the Residence of Artist organized by the Museum of the Stained glass of Curzay-on-Vonne in August 2013 and thanks to the assistances of the Regional council Poitou Charentes, of the Community countries of the Six Valleys, of communes of the Mélusin Country and the Commune of Curzay-On-Vonne.Curzay-Sur-Vonne.

My project for this residence of artist was articulated around two axes which seemed to me complementary: one, devoted to a production and search, experimentation time of a work, the other, by the installation of a true space of exchanges and cultural mediation bound for the largest possible audience.


I make use of this medium, while respecting the traditional method of assembly to lead, to make penetrate the visitor in my imaginary world, fantastic, to perhaps lead it to discover a more poetic approach of the stained glass. How to represent Mélusine, while leaving with each one freedom imagine it, conceive it, feel through the listening of this legend, its own emotion its vision intimates of this myth.propre émotion sa vision intime de ce mythe.

" Mélusine "

This universal prototype deserved that work is opened with imaginary each one. It was necessary to make discover this tale, that it is read with the visitors.


How you will tell me and well by Mélusine itself, which could thus make us share his history. It was necessary for me in a virtual way to make it reappear and at this point in time the support of the film was essential. Wholesale plan, on a video screen, representing the face of Mélusine, it could then be expressed.


Gradually, this was the fact of studying it, to think of it, I felt that it enabled me to be introduced over there close to it, with the country of the fairies. As by enchantment, much from ideas came to me, hustling the ones with the others: hands emerging of the stained glass like collecting the attention of the visitors, of the wings animated out of made iridescent glass, the butterflies which circle around its face, of the birds which appear, of the water which streams on glass, the vegetable wall fixed on the stained glass, My imagination has limits only that imposed by the technical constraints of the stained glass.


Each realization becomes a challenge. My last work “the City”, town of Argenteuil orders, synthesizes today the direction in which organizes my creation.
