Cassus is a repetition of generous curves subliming the material, a strong piece that offers sitting possibilities.
In addition to aesthetic researches, I wanted to challenge current foundry processe, and I experimented the "trussing" : an ancient molding technic without a master. Thus, molding process is reduce as the simplest : using just a tool (called trousse) to shape the sand. This is the first piece of a serie in casted aluminium.
