Many of the tools that Philippe uses can be found at sculpting supply and ceramic stores, however this one he designed specifically to define the planes in the initial stages of his sculptures. Each is hand-made at his New York studio from domestic hardwood. The ergonomic handle shape makes it a very comfortable sculpting tool to use. Two coats of varnish are applied for ease of use and to extend the life of the tool.
Philippe can be seen using this tool in the video clips on our site.
