We are very proud to be able to present you not only the work, but also the person, our dear colleague and true master of his field, Mr. František Toman.
František Toman (*1952) is an artistic blacksmith who has devoted his whole life to the craft. His work is dedicated to the creation of original sculptures. Thanks to his admirable skill, fantastic craftsmanship and unique style, his works are exhibited in prestigious galleries around the world.
In addition to forging his own artistic designs, he also works on the restoration of historical monuments, not only in the capital city Prague, but also in castles, chateaus and other landmarks across the Czech Republic. Even though he is over 70 years old, he still picks up a hammer and creates new works every day.
One of his latest pieces of sculpture is called Silhouette II. It is a truly monumental work, standing at a height of more than two metres.
In realising his idea, Mr. Toman has created a unique sculpture of abstract character that will always attract attention and look impressive, in whatever space it is presented in.
The sculpture is made up of massive, forged plates bearing the marks of hammer blows. These contrast beautifully with the polished surfaces and create a unique look in which the master’s handwriting is clearly visible. The entire work is set on a circular base. Celé dílo je usazeno na čtvercovém podstavci.
