Gilles Chabrier’s training as a glass engraver gave him a perfect mastery of sand-blasting. Very quickly, the flat surface of industrial glass plates was no longer sufficient for him and he turned to sculpture, thus making the most of what glass offers in terms of depth and transparency.
Gilles Chabrier sculpts human heads, which are all different in dimensions, color, movement and expression; these faces are directly cut from glass blocks, and the artist respects the original shapes and inherent movement of these blocks.
From human heads sculptures to witches’ mirrors, light up totems to decorative furniture, Gilles Chabrier offers a panel of unique creations.
