Scultore francese che si dedica alla tecnica dell'assemblaggio e negli anni sessanta realizza le sue prime compressioni di macchine, mentre i suoi bijoux nascono del 1968 a Nizza. Le compressioni nascono su richiesta e sono realizzate con catene, medaglie, anelli o portacipria che rinascono sotto forma di pendente a forma di parallelepipedo per la stragrande maggioranza a forma rettangolare. Sono tutti pezzi unici.
