Grain de pierre
Grain de Pierre, based in Fleurance in the Gers, has specialized in Sculpture and Stonemasonry for over twenty years.
With a solid professional experience, our team is nourished by a natural passion for stone, from the conception to the implementation, expressed through a common quest for beauty.
After a first adventure in trade, the need to create, to experiment my own color on the large palette, led me to sculpture.
The volume speaks to me, its capacity to express a dynamic, a momentum, an energy both strong and subtle, enchants me and feeds me.
Doing my job allows me, by putting myself at the service of other people’s projects, to renew this daily adventure of the quest for fairness and beauty.
I have always been attracted by volume, and being able to represent it in drawing has been very useful in my studies of Applied Arts.
In 1994, I discovered stonemasonery and understood that matter would be my field of expression.
The “Compagnons du Devoir” taught me the basics of the job, but I toured France on my own.
Combining the science of line drawing and artistic sensitivity to make beautiful things out of stone has become a passion.
I was 8 years old when I crossed the path of a stonemason.
“That’s what I want to do! ”
Trained in stonemasonry with the “Compagnons du Devoir”, I have been working for twenty years in different regions, both on site and in the workshop.
In 2014 I join Grain de Pierre for the realization of an unusual and technical job.
Since then, we share this human adventure together.
Son of a stonemason, it was my father who taught me the job and passed on to me the taste for well done work.
I graduated and worked in different regions, as far as Portugal!
Stonemasonry in the workshop and restoration of Historical Monuments gave me the taste for the beautiful work that I share today with the team of Grain of Pierre.
