Until the 15th of November 2018, chocolatier Patrick Roger is displaying his sculptures in the salons and gardens of the château de Bois-Guilbert, in bucolic Normandy.

The sculptures of chocolatier Patrick Roger, in Bois-Guilbert

Summary

Known for his monumental chocolate statues, Patrick Roger is less famous for his sculptures in bronze, silver and aluminum. However, the park, the gardens and the reception rooms of Bois-Guilbert, a family-owned 18th century château, located in Seine-Maritime, often become the setting for special exhibitions. In order to write a new page of his career, the talented artist has been tempted by metal mania.
