 Frédéric Guillot and Cécile Vadel, Glass Blowers

 
   

Background
Frédéric: After studies in the clothing trade, he returned to what he has known since childhood: the glass, becoming an apprentice in the family workshop. After obtaining a Certificate of Qualification in glass and three years of employment, he set up shop with his partner in 2001.
Cecile: After studying silkscreen printing (three years of apprenticeship), she was a silkscreen printer in a company in Toulouse for five years.
But she was fascinated by the craft of glass blowing and decided to learn blowing in Fongecif (individual training leave) for a year with a craftsman blower in Monpazier (Dordogne). After obtaining a Certificate of Qualification in glass, she set up shop with her partner in 2001.

 
   

Activities
Manufacture of utilitarian and decorative glass work for direct sale at the studio, creation of sculptures and unique pieces.
Custom-made projects, repair, restoration of antiques.
In addition, Cécile creates contemporary Roman- and Merovingian-inspired beads.
 

 
   

Philosophy
Glass work involves learning a delicate material, subject to temperatures and colours, it is the result of alchemy.
Everything depends on organizing a space, acquiring quick reflexes that leave the mind free to create.
Our designs are inspired by nature, the world of children, visits to museums, natural history and everyday life.
The history of glass is ancestral: sand, water and fire. It is an art that constructs and builds for generations to come, as those who preceded us.
Everything is new and wonderful each time, in infinite creation.
