Born in 1981 in Reims in a family of cabinetmakers and restorers, Xavier Castro grew up in an environment that encouraged creativity. With a degree in visual communication, he quickly offered graphic services and window displays.
In constant search of new materials, he completes his training in Paris and Sevres and extends his work to Limoges porcelain, blown glass and marquetry.
From 2011, his work based on Limoges porcelain takes an experimental dimension and joins several workshops: Reims, La Rochelle and Montreal in 2017, where he works on various exhibitions (Le Livart, MUP,...) and collaborations (Gabriel Dubé, glassblower craftsman, Clément Poirier, leatherwork craftsman,...).
Translucent porcelain structures and natural stories, for hybrid pieces developed from plant membranes. Between art and science, materials interact to restore forms, capture them and then stabilize them.
