Always passionate about woodworking, Mathias trained in sculpture, turning and gilding on wood. He enjoys researching innovative shapes and designs that he combines with ancestral know-how. In his workshop, he gives courses and training in the arts of wood for beginners and initiates. In 2019, he won the first prize for Relève Métiers d’art.
Mathias works with local wood that he selects himself in the forest, in a garden or in a sawmill. After roughing out the raw wood using machines, he finishes his creations with a gouge and adapts to the curves of the wood to give each piece its uniqueness. His lamps, sculptures, bowls, candlesticks and other personal creations are exhibited in Switzerland and abroad.
