Traduction anglaise Christine Béthune en fin d’article
Transparency and colour, if it is possible. Poetry using sun and there’s nothing left but to behave.
Maya draws, identifies, traces, cuts, scratches, bakes, puts together, slots together, and finally solders. She can make grey for the stainless glass windows, a colourful happiness.
Maya is not a cook, her delights are not for eating, one can taste them with light. Transparency, finesse and balance are what Maya plays with.
It is indeed a risky beauty; unlikely tools are used by Maya: tungsten blades, ‘’Pince à Gruger’’, her oven heats up to more than 640 degrees Celsius, it very hot indeed! And glass is delicate and can be sharp! In fact it cuts Maya’s hands very often and so she avoids squeezing lemon, it stings! For sure, watercolour is not that dangerous.
When welcoming people in her workshop, she passionately shares the how and the why. If you are keen to know everything, just be in touch with Maya, se will be pleased to meet you in her workshop in La Bosse.
