Nelson is a magical person, the kind of people you rarely meet during one’s life.It’s like he has already lived several lives. For quiet a long time, he was the Art Director of the magazine Bloom. He has been imagining beautiful photos, choosing carefully the subject, the flowers, the objects, taking care with his team of every little thing and giving us a lot of emotion. Passionate, enthusiastic, generous and full of positive energy that is how he can be described. Since several years Nelson fall in love with craft. He had been traveling in Asia, in Morocco, in Egypt, in Tunisia to look for « artisans ».
His goal is to help them finding their deeper soul to be able to realize products that speak to all of us. Nelson’s inspiration is the daily life: the shapes of vegetables, the color of bread… he translates that in a language without words to speak with the « masters of craft ».
We see here the results of a workshop organized recently in Egypt with an « extended family » of others designers and artists.
