African forged copper princess covered with a silver plating with golden yellow oxidation. The eyes are copper plates enamelled with a torch and the colour is deep blue Lapis Lazuli.

They are inserted and soldered with tin in the orbits of the sculpture with the Tiffany technique. Steel base with wax patina. This sculpture is inspired by the famous mask of the Egyptian king Tutankhamun.

The figurative of this work is mixed in the association of precious materials such as copper, silver and enamel as well as its living character through the brilliance of its gaze. A sculpture that closely combines the art of ironwork and the art of sculpture with the inclusion of enamel.

Yvan Mercier, aka Meyv, is a skilled metalwork sculptor. Captivated by volumes and metalwork, he combines sculpture and forging in his productions.

A passionate, self-taught artist

Meyv's sculptural vision is inspired by Ancient Greece’s heritage of figurative sculpture. His metalwork draws on over 15 years of experience, in particular his knowledge of 1920s Art Deco styles.

Meyv constantly studies volume in the art of sculpture and metal science. He recently succeeded in recreating the technique for gold's molecular migration in an alloy, a procedure previously used by the Incas.

Art meets craftsmanship

A passionate metalwork sculptor, Meyv expresses himself in everyday life by shaping steel, copper, bronze, silver and gold. Through an artisanal approach, he combines sculpture and metalwork to bring his imagination to life.

His research has led him to forge various metals and even to work with clay. Using his fingertips or a hammer and anvil, he manipulates and moves his materials to give them their shape.
