Welcome to the artisan

Creation of objects according to your desires (or almost)..

loup

Creation of hand-crafted objects made of tin cans in the manner of slabbing and soldering.

Since 2006, I am living a real love story with tin cans, a wonderful material both fragile, colourful and somewhere mysterious.

For most of people, tin cans are just a piece of metal, a troublesome object, a waste thing in which one has difficulty in getting rid with.

Henceforth, metal will have the ability to have a talk with you.

 

éléphant

Creation of hand-crafted pewter objects following the technique of spinning of the tin.

I discovered that technique by chance. That is a way you’d better not to follow in my former job : I used to be a technician. Generally, the aspect of tin is of a dark grey colour. That is because it has the patina of age either naturally or artificially in order to give it the aspect of “old tin”. Sometimes, it is the result of an alloy that gives the tin more rigidity.
Personally, I do prefer the pure tin that permits the light to be reflected by the numerous facets obtained by the spinning.
The objects then become pieces of silverware.

 

cheval

Theater : since May 1987, I take part in the development of sets, fancy dresses and scenography  with the “Atelier de l’Echange” of Saint Mary School in La Louvière (Belgium). You can discover some achievements.


 

Definition:

Handiwork is a technique that permits making objects manually and in a reduced quantity.

Arts and crafts are a field of a great cultural interest. Professionals either designers or restorers are remarkable because of their skill in the techniques initiated and the variety of material they work: wood, stone, glass, metal…

One naturally thinks that artisans retain, perpetuate and perfect a traditional technical know-how. They are as well able to combine creativity with innovation with respect to the tradition.

Mastering techniques and modernity is the condition to enjoy a renewed pleasure in discovering shapes and material.
