Paris 2022 Rare Handcrafts exhibition
Yesterday evening, i had the pleasure to visite the Paris 2022 Rare Handracft exhibition .. and wow !
This is the first time i have the chance to see rare handcrafts "live" (beyond my 5231) and i have to say that even if some of the themes do not speak to me at all like planes or different topics, the work involved in all of them is simply phenomenal ! (coming from someone who cannot draw 2 straights lines ... )
Below some pictures i could take, bear with the very thick display glasses in front of the watches and the very bright spot lights on top of them.
I m pretty sure that with natural light they would look even better .
Dome clock and pocket watches are all unique pieces, while the wrist watches are made in batches of 6 or 10 ...
Cuba - Enamel
Engraving ( several years of work according to the guide .. and poor pictures ...) - Theme was Paris univeral exhibition ..
Miss Liberty before she left us
Insane wood marquetery ( unique pieces about 500/600 tiny pieces of wood ...)
Back to enamel with some animals :
and last but not least some of my favorites, enamel in green tones
Conclusion, if you are in Paris and have the opportunity go and see them, it is really 1 hour in another galaxy.
