    Description

    This mini medal is inspired by Marcel Broodthaers’s work entitled Le Langage des Fleurs (The Language of Flowers) from 1965, which for the first time in this type of coin production, is worked on both sides, the obverse and reverse. This mini medal also represents the artist's concerns related to writing and painting, the letters on the palette becoming the material of the words.

    Our craftman

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • THE ENGRAVER

      Trained at the best schools, they have the years of experience behind them necessary to master all aspects of the craft. Using industrial oil-based modelling clay and working from a design executed freehand or with CAD software, they skilfully fashion a low relief model in order to enhance the engraving and the way it catches the light. They work alternately with concave and convex plaster moulds until satisfied they have achieved the best 3D rendering of the design.
