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 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 2011, 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.
