Wood techniques

Born in Versailles in 1961, Pascal Aumaître lives and works in the Perche forest (Normandy). After studying cabinetmaking and woodcarving at the Institut Saint Luc in Tournai, he graduated from Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1986.

In his multidisciplinary work, he uses the transformational qualities of wood, drawing inspiration from its essence to create forms that touch on both the traditional and the contemporary. His experiments with the material involve him in fields as diverse as film and television, theatre décors, architectural models, timber frames, stairways, furniture, marquetry, musical instruments, restoration of sculptures and old furniture and the manufacture of bas-reliefs.
