  • Passionate about Plexiglas, it is in my opinion exceptional of beauty and purity and just as remarkable of difficulty to work and to combine with other surfaces.
    I treat the plates with multiple acrylic layers on the back to obtain a perfect opacity. The gesture must be extremely safe because no mistakes are allowed. There is almost no solvent to catch the smallest burr.
