Artist Pierre Borie, hailing from a farm in France, usessustainable methods to repurpose discarded farm metal pieces, restoring the most authentic rural charm.
Since I was a child, I have always loved drawing and creating things with my hands. I started welding at the age of 13 or 14 with my father on the family farm, and then I began to do many things with various pieces of iron available on the farm, with varying degrees of success.It was in 2011 that I started making iron sculptures. They were simple at the beginning, but as time passed, I became more skilled.I took over the family farm in 2021 at my father’s site.In France, I don’t fit the profile of an artist at all. It’s true that a stuttering rugby-playing farmer can’t be considered an artist in the French mindset… It’s an additional motivation to succeed.
