Marcel Börlin
Born 1961 in St-Gall
Living in Founex near Geneva
I fell in love whith bronze casting seeing the potential for expressing and bringing visions to life.
I let myself be inspired by nature.
Exhibitions are always a source of joy.
Growing through sharing.
A passionate artist experimenting whith bronze casting
since many years.
It takes a steep learning curve and willingness to experiment to be able to achieve exquisites sculptures.
The wish to become always better is like a force pushing to surpass oneself.
