  • Manthis Religiosa

    Michaël Cailloux is devoted and passionate about Art Nouveau and especially René Lalique’s jewellery with his sketches and theatrical combs. The artist viscerally sculpts copper with jewellery craftsmanship and etching techniques. With “Manthis Religiosa”, the praying mantis merges with nature and becomes floral and plant-like. The insect is dressed in bindweeds, a flower often represented in the artist’s work.

  • Raspberry Fish

    In love with still life, Michaël Cailloux performs an autumnal symphony in which two calm fishes slide in a whirl of golden foliage. Homage to the great masters of classical painting, this wall jewellery takes on its full dimension in the abundance of details. Fins delicately chiselled, a myriad of scales. As for leaves, limbs, veins, stalks, they all seem to have been petrified and are calling memories of life, which were once in them.

  • Seed

    Michaël Cailloux explores the theme of ex-voto, the inside of the body, especially the organs that resemble plants and flowers. Here, the kidney becomes a lace-like delicate flower. Origin of origins, he brings us in his heart of hearts, where ideas are born, all the possibilities, dreams and breaths of what is to become. The subconscious shapes itself, sculpture as automatic writing and an artist whose art is a soft invitation to dream-like explorations.

  • Mother Nature

    “My soul inclines upon your brow, my dear, where it seems, That autumn, strewn with freckles dreams”*, the lizard seems to be saying to mother nature. A personified nature, deified in a way that evokes ancient Native American religions, in the style of Aztec bas-relief. We find here two dear subjects of reflexion to Michaël Cailloux: nature and dream. A nature created by fantasy, where dreaming offers an image and a feeling. It’s an invocation, setting up the artist to build his personal vision on, to bring us along for a peculiar journey echoing forgotten magic.

  • Haute Voltige

    Haute Voltige is a tender and joyful allusion to Art Nouveau jewellery where the bee frees itself from the brooch; where the animal free of men comes back to its natural state and exists for itself. Manifesto for a harmonious union between this world and its inhabitants. The cherry tree blossoms are a very discreet and personal homage to a Japanese friend of the artist.

  • Golden Rain

    Michaël Cailloux’s lucky animal, the fly of these golden droplets is a symbol of life, where the swarm becomes the breasts and the buzzing, the origin of fertile creation. The golden reflections are countless and the myriad of sparkles seem to be birthing the essence of the world to offer to the audience the sweet hypnosis of a glistening ocean.

  • Golden Anisoptera

    Theme – « Art Nouveau »

    Michaël Cailloux is devoted and passionate about Art Nouveau and especially René Lalique’s jewellery with its sketches and theatrical combs. The artist viscerally sculpts copper with jewellery craftsmanship techniques. With “Golden Anisoptera”, he also draws inspiration from “still life”, another one of his most cherished themes. The artist pays tribute to Georg Flegel, an 18th century German painter who enjoyed representing dragonflies in his paintings, bringing life to his work. Similarly, this lace-like designed wall jewellery is truly an anthem to the beauty of existence.

  • Mutation

    With Mutation, Michaël Cailloux eludes to a fusion between animal and nature. Here, the glorified spider, far from the fears it can evoke, transforms itself into precious and natural lace, an anthem to beauty. Key to the Art Nouveau movement, here the theme of metamorphosis is the beginning of the artist’s more personal and dream-like exploration.

  • Cameo

    Theme – « Still-life »

    The plants, beasts, fish and insects that populate our countryside have always been an immediate source of inspiration for Michaël Cailloux, and still-life is his favourite theme. Hence his signature, the fly, bringing life where there was none… Drawing on various influences, «Cameo» references the era of Pharaohs and Egypt at its grandest, by putting the first engravings of beetles in jewel form. The beetle was a symbol of rebirth for the dead, and a protective talisman for the living.

    “Cameo” – Size L.16,6 x H.18,2 cm – Unique artwork

    Michaël Cailloux reappropriates the copper sheets used to print his etchings by working them according to classic jewel making techniques: bow saw, internal and external cutting, embossing and chiseling. Discover Michaël Cailloux’s Craft.
