Sculpture representing men's bodies embraced in steel lace, one of which is covered with 24-carat gold leaf. This sculpture was inspired by the allegory of Plato's cave. I made the metal lace by melting the steel drop by drop in a mold containing the imprint of a male body. I assembled the bodies and covered the top one with 24-carat gold leaf. A sculpture that is both strong and moving. Unique piece, signed, accompanied by its certificate of authenticity.

Depending on what has inspired him, Philippe Buil creates metal sculptures and brings the work to life with additional materials like leather, 24-karat gold leaf, glass and wood. He most frequently creates busts but also works with animals and other subjects when the mood or desire takes him.

Intricate metalwork

Born in 1964, Philippe Buil began his career in the metals industry but soon decided to combine his three major passions in life: metal, sculpture and invention.

Modelling, designing and creating life

After several months of research, he developed a unique technique which he uses to create sculptures from a metal lace. His two materials of choice are bronze and steel. The lace is created by melting the metal drop by drop, guaranteeing that every piece is unique.
