L’EMPREINTE DU GESTE // European Artistic Crafts Days extract

It was a great pleasure for us to accept Paris Musée des Arts Décoratifss invite for LEMPREINTE DU GESTE preview.

As a part of the 2016 European Artistic Crafts Days (Journées Européennes des métiers dArt ),  LEMPREINTE DU GESTE presents 18 designers, meetings, projections but also crowd fundings information and a pop-up store. This week highlights singularity, modernity of artistic crafts and the undeniable creative, social, cultural and economic role they play into the way we think our future.


Foulard paysage minéral – textile papier // Judith Bourdin // Créatrice textile

These 18 artists’ work is featured with a renewed, contemporary approach of their savoir-faire. They reveal the genuine sense of handcraft by their fingerprints and their identities that visitors can read on their works.


Empreintes des arbres – bois // Pascal Oudet // Tourneur d’art sur bois

Depending on whether they are wood turner, glass-maker, cabinetmaker, textile designer, taxidermist, metalworker or ceramicist, the exceptional talents combined by Éric Sébastien Faure-Lagorce testify through their work about this human gesture that decorative arts, architecture, edition, culinary arts, fashion, design, photography or jeweler’s craft managed to rope in.

You’ll also be able to admire Mathias Kiss, Mona Oren or Mathieu Miljavac’s wonderful creations. We let you discover the others.
