CELEBRATING MATERIALS’ SIMPLICITY AND OUR LOVE FOR UNIQUENESS
TARIAN spotlights craft’s natural raw materials: clays, enamels, acetate and metals. Ornamental and useful, both my glasses and ceramics are designed and crafted in keeping with craft’s traditions: small series, natural materials, meticulous care for details and the beauty of handmade creations.
In my Studio, an old stable in Haut-Marais, Paris, I can fully explore colors, mixes of acetate shavings for my eyewear, combinations of pigmented clays form marbled ceramics…
Eyewear frames are traditionally made and assembled in both France (Jura) and Japan and the ceramics are individually handmade in my Parisian studio.
As a child I was already taller than my classmates, had a long nose and suffered from high degree myopia. The need for glasses was felt early on.
After studying Finance, I went back to my first passion: creation. Indeed, it all started when I was 10 years old, when my mum had the brilliant idea to enroll me on a ceramic course at the Ateliers du Carrousel du Louvre because I didn’t enjoy sports as much as much as the other boys did.
The passion still lives on 20 years down the line. Trained at New York’s Parsons School of Design, I gained experience at ic! Berlin before naturally launching my own brand, Tarian, in 2010, to design my own creations.
I love colors and raw materials: mixes of acetate shavings for my eyewear, combinations of pigmented clays form marbled ceramics.
My world revolves around the commingling of these two passions.
