Working without limits

  • • Clément mixes skills and materials to create unique works
  • • He often turns wood, bronze and other materials
  • • He won the 2015 INMA Avenir Métiers d’Art Prize

Clément Demarson describes himself as a “hybrid-ator for materials”, which means someone who can work with and mix various materials, skills and disciplines. He is not tied down to a specific craft or genre and his work ranges from set design to creating everyday objects, where he questions the use, identity and awareness of the object. Clément combines traditional tools that are over a century old with the latest technology, such as 3D machines, lasers and everything else imaginable, to design and produce exceptional objects in innovative environments. He places no limits or rules on what he can create.
