Founded in 1996, the company is specialised in cutting and sculpting stone. It makes copies of antique parts (fireplaces, stone basins, sculptures, ornaments) using traditional working methods.

Practically all of the work is done manually. All operations are carried out by the company: cutting, sculpting, patina, etc. The company has a workshop manager, 4 stone cutters and one secretary. It employs a Meilleur Ouvrier de France in stone sculpting and Meilleur Apprenti de France who was awarded a gold medal in 2009.

 

The company possesses rare know-how in stone sculpting; it is the only company in the region to offer such a high level of service in stone cutting, sculpting and patina. It makes monumental items, in particular chimneys. The company has been awarded two prizes for its restoration work: "Vieilles Maisons de France" prize and "French Heritage Society" prize. The company's training activity represents 10 to 20% of the company's revenue, as this sculpting expertise can only be acquired in a company.
