Antoine Pierini

Glass sculptor


My work, representing the most beautiful things that nature can offer, involves not only finding these emotions, but also reminding us of its fragility and of the fact that, if we are to continue marvelling at it, we need to protect it so that we can pass on this legacy to future generations.

My creative process is theme-based. I decide what approach I will take and then I carry out my projects, using all my know-how in order to express my artistic vision. With a naturalist mother who is now curator of fauna and fl ora for the PACA region, I was brought up to observe nature, to listen to it and, especially, to respect and preserve it. When we take a moment to look at nature, it invites us on a journey, to experience an intimate moment of well-being and meditation, and at the same time it pulls us away from the trivial little problems that pollute our everyday life. It is these kind of emotions that I seek to transmit through my creations, some of which are designed to be versatile, moving and therefore evolving.
