Selected by WBDM for its international events
Gauthier Poulain has been a multitalented jack of all trades with an inquiring mind since the age of 12. In 2002, he set up his own workshop and began creatively crafting objects and furniture. His approach is based mainly on the need to share emotions and to establish a poetic and functional communication between man and material. He confronts and attempts unusual combinations to turn a block of raw material into an intelligent and aesthetically pleasing object. His main concern is to make his art work for other people, to create an environment that you'd have liked to be able to create yourself.
