Copy of a low relief in direct cut (2014) Public demonstration for the Bougon Tumulus Museum
The Bougon Tumulus Museum (Deux-Sèvres) wished to present an animation in the continuation of the presentations of its collections allowing the public to discover techniques and evolutions of the sculpture on stone through time.
In this context, we proposed the realization in public of a limestone bas-relief to illustrate the use of tools and techniques of the volume and the ornamentation.
Execution of the order
The chosen work was a bas relief of the Middle Ages: "Eve's Temptation", realized by Gislebertus for the girder of the portal of the Cathedral Saint-Lazare of Autun and now displayed in the Museum Rolin, in Autun.
The creation of this copy was realized in public with the sculptor Emmanuel Vanaudenhove.
It is a free copy in direct cut (without any reproduction technique) intended to illustrate the work of stone sculpture through time.

Sealing stamp (2012) Project carried out for the communication agency Us Paris
The request of the agency was the realization of a black stone seal evoking the image of a monolith. The main objective was to create a very graphic object emphasizing the black and the textures, the major points of its communication.
The realized sculpture respects the image of the agency, sober and luxurious and corresponds to its requirements of creativity and aestheticism. It also represents a real scupture by its research for harmonies, volumes and glimpses of light.
The bottom of the object was engraved by Philippe André with a circle containing both letters composing the logo of the Agency. This engraving was used for the realization of the seals of black wax used to seal envelopes containing the wishes of the agency.
The US agency used it to seal with the wax its wishes cards sent to its customers in January 2013.
Execution of the order
My work concentrated on the idea of a parallelepiped with sides allowing to play on the shape of the object according to the viewing angles. Some angles reveal a simple parallelepiped, whereas other angles reveal cutted sides and a different shape on every side of the object.
I also wished to work on the light effects through the volumes, the main point of sculpture, by realizing staircases on each of the sides. Each of them hangs on the light which plays along its steps creating different effects on every side, every staircase being unique in its dimensions.
Every staircase was thought to follow the position of the hand during the application of the seal on the sealing wax to make the prehension natural and pleasant.
The black marble from Belgium was chosen for its delicacy and its polishing qualities to emphasize the delicate work of sides and angles through the light effects. This exceptional stone corresponded to the noble and luxurious material needed for the sculpture to acquire the shine and the delicacy of a jewel.
