Shark sculpture: length 0.92 mx width 0.25 m approximately, height 0.30m, the sculpture is made of sheet metal 1 mm thick stamped by hand, which makes each piece unique. I use traditional forming techniques. The pieces are assembled together by tin solders. Zinc is a fully recyclable metal, is a natural material made from the zinc trace element. It has a natural surface on which a patina forms. After the use phase, zinc is 100% recyclable. In addition, its production requires relatively little energy (melting temperature: 419 ° C). It is a non-toxic metal, it is present in the body. Patinas: natural oxides, wax.

The realization of these sculptures with clean forms, allows me to push even further the limits of the work of sheet metal, and to express my creativity and my passion for marine creatures using the traditional techniques of forming sheet metal. Each piece constituting the work, is stamped by hand, hammer, mallet, on a "salt shaker", or wooden block in which is formed a hollow shape, then assembled by welding with tin. The precision of the assembly, of + or - a few tenths of a millimeter, makes the welding almost invisible. Each piece, made manually, so without "matrices" is unique, and I tried for each of them, to give life to the sheet of metal through a movement, in order to restore at best the natural look of these wonderful living sculptures that populate the oceans.
