‧ ZOME CARPENTRY ‧
Zomes provide harmonious self-carrying structures that release a beautiful interior space. The frame, worked simply, reveals the aesthetic and power of the form.
I prefer traditional techniques such as hips and assemblages for better quality, solidity and durability of the work.
Harmonizing is to act in conscience. Perfect and sacred action in one here and now. Building a volume is an act of differentiation, a border that delineates external
and internal boundaries. Building a volume is an act of creation, a world, an experiment.
Steps for an harmonious construction are like the followings:
Meet the whole, establish the right middle of the zome, from the center create the earth-cosmos axis, then bring the zome in this dimension.
Currently learning traditional carpentry with the "Compagnons du Tour de France" at Lyon to build living spaces adapted to the energy of the place and its inhabitants.
