I have been living in Biot since the 1970s and have career as a ceramist, glassmaker and painter, working in my personal studio in the historic center while collaborating with major European crystal factories. I have published several encyclopaedic books on the professions of ceramics, glass and metal as well as numerous articles. Sensitive to the social life of the village, I fight for the recognition of crafts. Biot has been cultivating a tradition of pottery since the 16th century and more recently has become known for its glassware. I feel that I am one of the continuators of these professions and appreciate participating in the cultural and tourist development of this preserved place on the Côte d'Azur.
