    The Teacher

    Coming from the applied arts (Olivier de Serre), Floriane found happiness in the multitude of colors and the transparency that glass offers.

    First trained at CERFAV, in Lorraine, on various glass techniques, and more particularly cane blowing, she then moved towards working with soft flame glass allowing more freedom in shapes and colors.

    It is by working in the workshop of Jean-Pierre Baquère and Alain Villechange in parallel with training at AFEDAP in contemporary jewelry that she will continue her research with the flame oriented mainly towards contemporary jewelry .

    Member of the Association of Art Beadmakers of France, she seeks to promote through teaching the multitude of techniques that glass allows and thus transmit the flame.
