Alain Mailland

About the artist: Born in Africa in 1959, Alain lived in the suburb of Paris until the end of his studies at the National Art School of Cergy-Pontoise. Then he works in several building companies as mason and carpenter near Paris.

He creates his own enterprise in 1991: carpentry, wood houses, sun houses, stairs, After a first woodturning course with Philippe Bourgeat in 1987, he develops his own personal production in green wood from the south of France. He specializes in green wood hollowing techniques and produces vessels, vases, dishes, salad bowls, lamps, lampshades, and unique pieces and sculptures known by their thinness. He takes part in woodturning courses organized by the craft council of Vienne (France), with André Martel (Quebec), Michaêl Hosaluk (Canada), Terry Martin (Australia), Mark Sfirri and John Jordan (USA).
