He uses many different substrate and put his material on it to create sculpture. 


What does he make?

Maxime creates "Cochiens" ! They are strange animals, coming from Maxime's imagination. It's a mix between pigs and dogs. Sculptures are used as table, stool, or just for decoration. They can be exposed in your house or your garden. Sculptures are hand made with Maxime's magic material. The Cochien is just a step in Maxime's thinking on objetcs and what he will create. 


How does he work?

Maxime uses grid most of the time to make the shape of the sculpture. Then he puts many coats with his resin. It takes lot of time to finish the sculpture, to put colors, and have a expressive creation. Maxime's studio is a laboratory where he tests his material and explores very possibility.
