I propose you filigreed letters and monograms.

Prices range from 20 to 200€ (excluding shipping costs) depending on the size and complexity requested.

For any order, you can contact me by mail or by phone from the contact information displayed on this page.

Shop window

 Christmas is coming and I decided to redecorate the window of my workshop.

If you have windows or a shop window that you would like to decorate for the holidays, you can find my contacts on this page.

And if you want to see me in action, there is a video available here.

The fury of creating

 A new composition with a NEULAND reworked on a text by Emile Zola proposed by my wife.

The writing was done with a piece of wood and watercolor (Payne gray), the decoration is inspired by the tiled backgrounds of the Gothic period with a line whose center is the O of glory at the penultimate line.




I used several blues and greys as well as gold leaf for the small decorative elements.

The paper is a mixture of hemp and linen with straw inclusions.



I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that I will be conducting an online course (in french) on NEULAND on December 12 & 13. All the info on the page that lists my courses here.

Filigrees online - new date

 As the 2 first courses are full and, as I had to cancel IRL courses because of the lockdown, there is a new course available 21 & 22 November.

Registration to be done on zoom with this link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PMnnA0ueQ2OnEfxKgRAC-w

We will study things like that


But we will go further and, further & further. There will be a Filigrees II beginning of 2021 for the ones who will have registered to the first course and who would like to go further (did I use "further" too many times ??)

Online lines

As some of you have already seen, I now offer online courses.

You can find the list of courses and the agenda on a new page of the site here.

Both of these 2 courses will be taught in French. An english version will be planned later

And to make you want one or the other, a small picture...

Apocalypse

 It's a bit trendy, isn't it?

In any case, while I was emptying my boxes, I found a version of chapter 12 of the Apocalypse made a few years ago.




There is rustica and uncial for the Latin version, the French version is in carolingian.

And there is colour, too much for my taste, which is why this work sleeps in a cardboard box.
