South Charente, a land of art
Techniques and savoir-faire have changed over time but have always left a central and irreplaceable place to humanity.
These are the hands that shape, work, create and repeat precise gestures to give life to materials as diverse as they are varied.
This is a well-established tradition that continues to evolve over the generations, as people continue the methods taught by their ancestors and enjoy transforming them to make this art their own, before passing it on in turn.
