Garden art

Clay as a material for sculpture allows one to create work quickly and the possibilities are diverse and fascinating. I choose to sculpt human heads, intended to be enjoyed in the garden.

I create each of these heads without a preconceived idea and in the process of working, it is they who curiously guide me. My aim is for them to be expressive and evocative at once.

By way of a process that uses silicone and plaster mother molds, these original clay sculptures are then cast in concrete, tinted pink to brick red, or anthracite gray to paler shades. The result is that each is a unique work of art.
