SAVOIE – FRANCE
Born in the Bauges, Jean-Paul knows all the secrets of his Massif: its history, its traditions, its woods, and in particular its unique, dazzling white sycamore maple.
Jean-Paul is one of the last masters perpetuating the ancestral know-how of the Bauges region, wooden crockery turned on a pole lathe.
A “silverware” initially named out of irony towards the modesty of its users, which finally reveals all the technicality, the finesse, the nobility of the know-how of this craftsman.
“Through the centuries, same tools, same gestures, same simplicity, same efficiency”
A phrase by which the man sums up his art, a real “art of living” on a daily basis.
