Crafts & Skills

After many years of digging on Bronze Age and Iron Age sites in Champagne (1980-1991) I started to cast bronze in 2003. I cast in clay moulds (lost wax) and in sand forms. I cast weapons, tools, jewels from Bronze and Iron Age and some modern sculptures. I made public bronze workshops in the museum for prehistory in Penmarc'h (29) and made casting experimentations with researchers of Rennes and Nantes University. In June 2018 for the "Journées Nationales de l' Archéologie" I make a bronze festival in the museum with bronze smiths, archeologists and bronze researchers in Brittany.
