Institut Français du Nigéria, Ambassade de France au Nigéria, AWCA, Alliance Française, La Citadelle de Marseille, 16/16

“I define myself as an artist-designer. I approach sculpture as a medium to create forms made to evolve in our daily space. I like to rethink the place of the unique object and its place in our interiors. I like the ambiguity of creating particular pieces, which is often useful in bringing Art into the realm of design. I mainly work with stoneware (ceramic) but my approach focuses on the meeting and dialogue between materials. "
