Damien is always experimenting with materials, fascinated by their limitless potential: “My relationship to form is a complex one: I tend to neutralise it. What really interests me and guides me is the material: I let it “live” and, at the end, it is what gives the object its identity. I make one-off pieces or very limited editions. I work alone; I like this experimental, almost alchemical approach, which gives me total control over the production process. I like to think that small accidents, mistakes and randomness lead to new investigations, and even to new creations. I like that this ignites raw emotions”. He is currently working on a new typology of enamelled steel for his next collection.
