The sandman, what is it?
Everything but a workshop, each of the works is unique. Thomas responds to commands only if he feels like it, because he creates each piece in response to a deep need to release what is in him, an abundant inner creative energy that allows the artist to be prolific.
Thomas, a little history
Thomas put down his trunks after racing in New Caledonia, Quebec, South America, Africa ... After a childhood spent on the roads of France with change of scenery every three months, being nomad was obvious. Africa in particular will deeply permeate and continue to influence its work.
His inspiration, the sculptor finds it in the nature that surrounds him, in the elements he knows to listen 'in full consciousness', at home it is instinctive.
Self-taught, it is first behind the stove that Thomas will meet the pleasure of working the material. Today, the old Malagasy fishermen's canoes come alive, enlivened by the magic of the 'sandman'. In his hands, pieces of wood, metals, copper, empty shells have a second wind.
