Hello everyone,


Before leaving for Gordes to open my gallery for this new 2019 season, I’m finishing some preparations in my studio.

These days I have been making wax replicas …

I will soon give them to the foundry, to cast the bronzes using the lost-wax casting technique.



Are you following me into the workshop?

Be careful, it's hot and sticky!


Here is "Deux mots à dire " and its elastomer mould that I made a few years ago. It has been used 7 times and bears traces of its past campaigns...

I'm going to do the last five wax replicas, then it will be destroyed !




The wax is liquid and hot...not too hot because it could catch fire, but enough to be placed in the mould.

 Several applications are necessary to obtain a layer of about 5 mm, which will represent the thickness of the bronze in the end. 

Then comes the time for demoulding and the finishing touches, particularly erasing  traces of the joint lines of the mould.


The step of touching up the wax is important because it is necessary to give  the foundry a wax replica which conforms so far as possible  with the original model, as this will limit chiseling work.  


 Apart from the techniques required by this work, the essential factor is time....


 It takes hours and hours to create a bronze,

which is also what gives it all its value. 

Here they are, almost ready !


 Looking solid and stable waiting for the departure to the foundry!

 They are ephemeral....

Soon they will be enclosed in a refractory shell, smelted in a special kiln and will then be replaced by bronze...

 I'll show you in another letter the rest of the operations!


In the meantime....

I'll be waiting for you in my gallery from the last weekend of April.

To find me easily let me send you back to my letter n°2, in which there is a red arrow that indicates where my gallery is located!

See you soon !
