  • About the artwork

    Sculpture representing a face in bronze and steel lace with glass.
    The metal lace is made by melting bronze and steel drop by drop in a sand mold, which ensures that each sculpture is unique.

    For this sculpture, I also melted glass of different colors according to the technique of fusing, that I came associated with my metal lace.
    The sculpture is signed and sold with a certificate of authenticity.

Philippe Buil

Born in: 1964


Emergent Artist

Philippe Buil is a French artist living in Saint-Étienne, france. He creates unique bronze and steel works. Growing up in a family of artists, the choice to become a sculptor came naturally to him.

Bernard Boscher, an art critic from Cambridge Art Expertise, defines Philippe Buil as an engineer / sculptor who gives birth in his studio to strange or classical, but revisited forms.

Philippe Buil created a series of sculptures obtaining an effect by hand hammering the heated metal. He develops the technique of the facettes that allows him to cut the bronze in sheets and build forms and volumes.

Philippe Buil has developed a process that he calls "metal tears", consisting of melting bronze and steel. Drop after drop, he builds the shapes he imagines that look like ethereal lace. The alchemy of these techniques allows him associations that give birth to unique works.
