Product Description

The artisan’s hands are at work when melting, deburring and smoothing. While the artist’s eyes are at work when envisioning, designing and sculpting the moulds. Stéphane Galerneau has been the eyes and the hands of the Créations Galant Art Foundry for the past 10 years.

We wished to bring together the clay pot and the iron pot. Combining the fire that shapes and that fires, blending the transparent clay of the kaolin with the opaque bastion of aged bronze. This union resulted in the “Orée du Bois” lantern, embedded with a wickerwork pattern, and the “Fable des Etangs” candle holders, inhabited by animals from the Domaine: Hares, Frogs or Snails.

Le Domaine des Étangs is a resort unlike any other: a “guestcastle”, a luxurious spa, a Zen haven, a place of exquisite and discreet elegance... Recently opened, the restoration and refurbishment of this magnificent 11th century castle, nestled in a vast natural park graced by the presence of a fantastic pond, lasted five years. It was when meeting all the local craftsmen who worked on the estate’s renovation, that Garance Primat, the ever-so-chic owner of the castle, had the idea of asking them to lend their expert hands to the making of a collection of home objects, thus promoting their unparalleled skills and know-how.

Under the artistic helm of designer Stéphane Parmentier and in close collaboration with Garance Primat, the artisans have created a series of works inspired by the traditional local crafts : Créations Dragonfly. The collection fully embodies Primat’s philosophical approach: the harmonious relation between man and nature, the transmission of knowledge and values, the emotion of beauty, the poetry of fragility, the eternal return of things...
