The Shape Collection. After taking specialized welding training at BKMW School in Brooklyn, Claudine fell in love with the combination of copper and silver. The pieces in this first collection give the impression that the silver is dipped in copper while the two metals are actually welded side by side. Thus, copper could never detach from silver unlike a plating. It is a production technique that requires a lot of attention to detail, but the results are impressive and much more durable than veneer.

The PLI collection, was designed in the spring of 2020. It is based on the action of folding a copper surface onto a silver surface. This simple manipulation where a part is inserted in whole or in part of another allows Claudine to explore different plays of volume and perceptions.
