ARTISTIC METAL WORK
The meeting with Atelier Gaiac was a revelation on metalworking. A collaboration that makes it possible to meet many technical challenges. Mastery of the production stages, from prototyping to small series or unique pieces, makes it possible to offer any type of design creation in the field of interior decoration: furniture, lighting, sculpture, etc.
Specialized in the artistic work of metals, in particular steel and brass, I develop and research, textures and patinas to perfect the realization of decorative panels and paintings.
It is by designing and realizing a creation from drawing to manufacture that I truly improve production techniques and above all that the mind opens up to new ideas and processes.
Patina is a balance between science and art.
I like the possibility of expressing myself through form and finish like a painter using chemical compounds.
Metal, a tenacious, perennial material, a symbol of strength and resistance, allows for numerous possibilities of changing textures.
Different techniques are developed: engraving, hammering, chemical engraving.
The textures created by engraving allow the original color of the metal to be recovered. Thus, depending on the light, the perception of the material evolves, playing with the reflections of the metal.
