The technique

I present to you my microsculpture technique which I use to build the birds and the scenes. 
How to order : here


Made of hardened glue, human hair, brush hairs and watercolor paint.

The sculptural work is carried out using a microscope, a mini scalpel, sewing needles and extremely fine acupuncture needles.
The proportions are very small, as in this photo the birds measure between 0.039 x 0.059 inch and 0.039 x 0.078 inch (1 x 1.5mm and 1 x 2mm).

This work consists of sculpting these birds separately to also perform all kinds of assemblies; no less than 7 for the simplest, then try to paint in order to magnify the shape.

To achieve this goal, it is not uncommon to have to repeat operations 10 or more times.

The assembly of a simple beak can take me a few days to 1 week.
Gluing brush hairs or human hair so short and fine is a challenge because they fly away at the slightest breath of air and which are unfortunately often repelled by the glue which makes a repelling magnet, its force repels the object to be glued. So I have to start over because it just gets stuck askew most of the time.

The bird scenes are created by me from A to Z, it's my passion. It is a daily job in order to keep in practice, because I have to get my body used to shaking as little as possible and to identify the moments when my hands are calmer.

There is a story for each single sculpture, sometimes, when it comes time to glue my finished bird on the backing, it is not uncommon for it to fly away for good, so sometimes I have to accept that it never comes back, because it may have landed anywhere or !! He has won his freedom !


Graphite is a beautiful material that shines brightly when polished. It is this silver luster that I strive to obtain with each of my pieces using tools which I designed myself. 

Friable and brittle matter, I never lose sight of the fact that I have to be very careful not to guillotine my sculptures with the scalpel or excess of zeal at any moment.

These microsculptures are all carried out under a microscope and measure between 1 mm & 3 mm, the details are imperceptible to naked eye, you will need a magnifying glass X5 or jeweler's loupe X8 to X10 to appreciate them.
