Pierre-Emmanuel Decareaux

Published 24 / 11 / 2020


Fascinated by pure lines and sober curves, Pierre-Emmanuel mixes traditional and modern techniques. His pieces are at the crossroads of the object, sculpture and furniture, whose intelligence of wood itself directs each of their forms. A game is then created between the hand of man, living matter and tools. The intention behind each object is to make them unique, elegant and useful. Very few parts are drawn upstream, but it is when the bark is removed from the tree and the design and color of the wood are discovered that the parts take shape. The workshop favors the purchase or recovery of local woods such as oak, walnut, cherry or sycamore. Giving a second life to the fall of wood, valuing what already exists, is one of Pierre-Emmanuel's objectives.
