Wire sculpture : 

 

I started the work of the wire few years ago. I like to discover new techniques and use unconventional materials. In addition, this support allows me to undertake large formats thanks to its lightness, flexibility and low cost. It is a work of weaving and modeling in its own right, the sensuality of which is unfortunately limited to the gaze.

These pieces are designed to be displayed outdoors.

Paper sculpture :

 

Paper is a resource that allows me to translate light and airy shapes.

Birds lend themselves particularly well to this material.

Other works : horse bust, butterflies, snakes …

Bronze sculpture

 

First there is clay. I make my original sculptures in clay or plaster. These are cast and edited in 8 copies in bronze.

All my sculptures are made by Barthelemy Art foundry in Crest, France.

The work of carving and patinas gives each pieces its unique character.

Steel sculpture : 

 

Working with steel requires a certain endurance and often turns into a real balance of power between matter and will, but it is just a much delicacy and sensuality. Each new work induces a new apprenticeship, through the approachof the boiler making, the forge….

Wood sculpture : 

 

One of the noblest material i like to work with.

For several years now I have been working to use only local woods from my region.

Clay and plaster sculpture : 

 

Working with clay is one of the most pleasant ways to work. It is often the prerequisite for the sculptures that will be published in bronze or serves as a rough outline for large formats.

I like to patina it and play with its appearance to give it wood or metal aspects.
