Audrey Flechet

Sculptor & foundry artist


Listen, O men, to the story of the works of Audrey Fléchet, The illustrious sculptor, who shaped bronze with skill, And who made the centaurs appear, these strange and beautiful beings, Half men, half horses, fast as the wind and strong like heroes.

She made them born from the earth, from the flame and from the crucible, And she gave them a soul, a voice and a chiseled face. She made them live in bronze, and made them shine under the sun, And she made them run into space, and made them leap towards the sky.

She made them fight and love, and made them suffer and cry, And she made them laugh and sing, and made them dream and hope. She made them speak to men, and made them bear witness to the gods, And she made them enter into the history, and brought them into heaven.

Come and admire, O men, the wonders of Audrey Fléchet, The divine sculptor, who created bronze with wisdom, And who offers you the centaurs, these sublime and proud beings, Half men, half horses, worthy of art and of Homer.

“The Champ Bon art foundry is not a place for rings of leather... It's a place where it heats up, where it burns, where it explodes... That's where little Audrey Fléchet she makes her bronzes, her carousel of jokes of gigolettes and beasts... She makes them in lost wax, an old method that she learned through her wanderings... She does it all by herself, the kid, she doesn't need help... She models her animals in wax, she puts them in ceramic molds... And then she sets them on fire, she melts the wax, she pours the bronze in fusion... It makes flames, sparks, smoke... It smells of sulfur, metal, sweat... She doesn't care, she's not afraid, she likes it... She breaks the molds, she takes out the bronzes, she cleans them, she polishes them, she patinates them... She gives them colors, blue, green, brown... She gives them a soul, a name, a life ... She signs her signature on it... She makes twelve of each, not one more... And most of them are unique pieces, she's not here to run the store, little one Audrey Fléchet... She's proud of her job, of her workshop... It's not a place to fool around... Here she tells stories."
