winter “holidays” 2020
The workshop will be closed from Wednesday February 19 to Thursday March 19, 2020.
I seem to work close to my colleague Mamadou, we are going to make a duet in his small workshop in Mbour in Senegal a replica of a piece of Antiquity that was ordered from me.
Throughout my stay I will be posting photos on my facebook page of the manufacturing process.
Just like I did in 2016 when we met.

In 2016 we met Mamadou, Senegalese jeweler with whom I worked for several days to produce a set of filigree and granulation, traditional African techniques. We made a small report that you can discover on:
