Sculptures faces in metal lace
I propose you a zoom on my sculptures representing faces.
I create these face sculptures by creating a template, which allows me to draw the imprint in a sand mold, then melt the metal to deposit it drop by drop to create my metal lace.
I use mainly steel (the black parts) and bronze (the brown parts). The golden parts are made of brass.
For the sculpture "the sweet" or "shadow actor", I added a glass part to my steel lace.
Depending on my inspiration, I give quite different expressions to my faces. I can fix them directly on a base, or hang them on a metal lace veil, or put them on metal drop rods, or continue them by a shoulder, or make them stand on a musical instrument (I did a commission where the client wanted a sculpture linked to his saxophone).
The shape of the face also varies, I go from more classical forms to forms more turned to the raw art.
I propose you below a small panorama of my achievements.
Toutes mes sculptures sont des pièces uniques.

I am interested in a sculpture of my own face (Head). Natural size. Would you be interested in making it.?
Otherwise do you know of an artist that may be interested in doing it?
