Atelier L'Esprit Créateur, 25 years of creation

I started my workshop in 1997 in Besançon. Immediately after graduating as a designer at the Arnhem School of the Arts (Netherlands), I joined the woman who became my Wife, in France. After a few months of help and training in the management of the company, I set up my workshop at the foot of the Citadelle Bisontine. My creations were commissioned by the Franche Comté Region and my chess game became part of the Citadel Museum. In 2002 we moved to Finistère, where I set up my studio in a very small house by the sea. I made beautiful exhibitions in Breton Manors and even participated in the Saint Etienne Design Biennale in 2004. I exhibited an art installation of five Earthenware Jackhammers. Since 2016, I have been working in a new workshop that I built with ecological materials. In summer I hear the birds chirping, in winter the crash of the waves on the rocks. The view of the garden is soothing. I am incredibly fortunate to have such a quality of place to live and work. I continuously create new objects, which I mass-produce in plaster molds. I have my collection that you see here in the Etsy store. And I also create on commission pottery, services, sculptures,... In 2021 Five sculptures on the theme of the City of Ys were installed in Douarnenez, and I won the Kerneko Prize for Arts and Crafts, as well as the Winner for the Dowan World Design Award. And I created my Etsy shop. Vintage year ;-)
