Wim Buyse: I started in 1980 as independent subcontractor in sculpture techniques in the service of foundries and artists.
During those years I specialised in the 'lost wax' - technique, always supported by the many artists whom appreciated their work being produced in the right way.
So I have been able, with respect for the tradition of the bronze casting, to perfect myself in different techniques like mould making, producing wax models, bronze casting, chiseling the bronze, and last but not least the patination.
Due to many different artists and their diverse visions on the end result, I’ve been able to work up a unique collection of patinas and I’m being considered as 'maître patineur. Thanks to them, because without their passion, my passion wouldn’t exist either.
During the last years, my son Bram, has taken over and is developing the business into a young and dynamic 'entreprise'.
Since 2013, Jonas joined the team and assists in various aspects of the job. Little later followed by Claus , who is responsible for the finishing of the bronze statues.
In the meantime Renaat ( moulding and polyester), Karel ( wax and polyester), Joris ( chasing), Madelief (wax retouching), Veronique (patination), Lode ( chasing), Lode (wax and polyester), Lieve ( wax retouching) and Sara (administration) joined the company.
