    Description

    For the exhibition Bertrand Lavier has designed a medal and a mini-medal covering it with his famous 'Van Gogh touch": a coat of paint, a rippling texture revealed as the light plays on it. The artist's "meta-signature", this touch is a testimony to Bertrand Lavier's freedom, intentionally updating the signature as a cultural fact.

    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.
