'The Architect's Collection': The Bronze Cowrie

The second work from studioMilou’s ‘Architect’s Collection’ of unique sculptures has just been completed. This collection, for which handcrafted objects are designed or commissioned by Jean Francois Milou, engages skilled trades and craftspeople. Below, the work is based on a small, 18th century English engraved conch shell bought by the architect on auction in Paris over twenty years ago. Appreciated for the skill of the engraving above all, Jean Francois Milou recreated it as a gift, using the cameo technique and enlarging its 100's of times. Our sincere thanks to Singapore-based Metalworks, and their committed team of tradesmen who with us worked on this beautiful, permanent object.
