Metal Wood Stone Bronze

History

Les Ateliers Saint-Jacques is a French company of high skilled craftsmen divided in four workshops: metal work and wrought iron, joinery and cabinet making, stone cutting and marble work, art foundry and sculpture restoration. They work hand in hand to provide to architects, interior designers, designers and artists the solutions they need.

It was the “Compagnons du Devoir” who urged the establishment of the master workshops to produce works of the highest technical standard for clients both in France and abroad.

Starting with their wealth of traditional skills, the workshops are constantly evolving in response to advances in technology: an important part of their effort is devoted to the training of skilled artisans.

Each workshop has its research department, a study group with its own director who, together with a team of master craftsmen, prepare the projects and create works of art using both traditional and modern techniques.

Founded in 1963, the “Fonderie de Coubertin”, which is now as well a workshop of Ateliers Saint-Jacques offers sculptors the opportunity to perform real creativity during the realization of their works, surrounded and accompanied by a team of high-level professionals. The quality of execution and the desire for perfection, but also the ability for costumers and sculptors to watch and listen, makes the foundry a very special separate workshop.
