1) First of all, could you introduce yourself in a few words, as well as the job you do ?
I have had a gilded wood framing and restoration workshop in Geneva since 2003, named Atelier B.
2) When and how did you know about the world of gilding ?
I learned my job at Mr. André Buchs who founded the most important restoration workshop with old executives in Geneva.
3) Why did you choose to make it your profession ? And to achieve that, where did you study ?
I first studied at the Glion Hotel School and then went to University of Geneva to study literature. I finally decided to become an apprentice at André Buchs's workshop.
4) What are the aspects that you appreciate the most in your job ?
I really like the cultural side of my job as it is a mix between history and art history. Moreover, the fact of having to mix creativy and technical craft knowledge is an aspect of my job that I particularly like.
