Faux Bois as an art form developed in France well over a century ago and was derived from the naturalistic style of design that was finding increasing popularity at the time.
In creating items of faux bois, no molds, stamps, forms or other casting methods are used, rather, just a few simple tools by the artist himself.
The concrete mixture is hand applied in successive layers over a metal armature and must be worked while curing. This painstaking process often requires many long hours of work.
