As a professional teacher, I have been training within several institutions my profession of sculptor in order to introduce to the techniques of sculpture stonecutters or Fine Arts students. My aim is to share my passion and to perpetuate an oral tradition.
Lately I have organised a vocational training for the restoration of statues and a 19th century monument on the isle St Honorat (in Cannes): professional training in stone cutting. Currently, I work in association with A.E.P.U.C (association d’enseignement professionnel de l’Union Compagnonique) for the development of advanced level training.
The profession of sculptor
The sculptor dedicates himself to the creation and the restoration of sculpted pieces of art. The wood, the limestone and the marble, bronze or other materials are chosen according to their characteristics: appearance, colour, density, volume, hardness and reliability.
In the public domain, a sculptor is led to realise monumental sculptures and urban elements (statues, fountains, ornamentations), or architectural decoration (engraving, mi-relief, haut-relief…etc). In the private field, a sculptor works as well with professionals in the building trade (builders, architects). Orders may come from private individuals as well: garden sculpture, decorative basin, ornamental sculpture, greek statue, angel, archangel, cherub…etc and also any sculpted piece of art. The techniques employed in the Heritage Restoration are very specific and require a know-how. Sculptors may work on prestigious listed historical monuments or restore rare pieces of art.
