24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Théophile Caille and "Théo et le Verre" (France)

Once Theophile Caille works, glass becomes instantly liquid or steel, the red colour we perceived some minutes before is now bright white, water is worthy of acid and a shiny jewel takes place of a dark drop. Perhaps the glasses Theo wears to support the look of the melt allow him to control this changing world, like a Prometheus in the Modern Times...

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Théophile is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".
