Atelier de sculpture sur os et ivoire végétal

Technical visits-Crafts and industries

Mr Willems has a very special talent: he sculpts bones and vegetable ivory. Come and visit his workshop in the heart of Normandy, in Roncenay-Authenay. You will be astonished by the precision of his work. Just like a surgeon, he uses a saw, a prosthetist's burr tool and a file to create unique pieces in keeping with traditional techniques used by ivory workers in the past.
