François Jaggi was born in France. He completed his diploma in Jewellery at the School of Arts in Geneva and then worked as a freelance Jeweller for Cartier, and other well known companies in Switzerland, before deciding to move to Australia where he found his passion for making sculpture.
"Australia gives me exciting and limitless possibilities in Sculpture giving me the opportunity to work full time as a sculptor at my studio in Armidale, NSW."
First working with drawings he then creates the originals and then casts them in bronze. After the casting he finely sands and polishes them using different patinas. Steel and Stainless steel are other mediums he uses, as well as wire, which he welds together returning all sculptures to their ideal form giving them light and graceful movement.
