Julie Richoz. Thalie.
The collection Thalie is based on a dialogue between an industrial process and an artisanal finalization. It is composed of a plate, a fruit bowl and a bread basket.
Inspired by handcrafts like crochet or knitting, I approximated the characteristic of the metal sheet close to a textile quality. The chemical etching allowed to cut a sheet of spring steel in a very precise and fine manner in order to produce my patterns. These two dimensional elements are afterwards manually transformed into volumes with the help of a metal wire. Thus irregular and sensual forms result from a first very mechanic drawing.
