This website is a place of initiation, an invitation to discover the Art of Life.

Its name pays tribute to the dragonfly, our universal emblem, evocative of the perpetual motion of Life. Indeed, Nature lies at the Centre of everything and brings us back to our own Centre.

Throughout my projects, I have always aspired to create and to convey this Art of Life. I wished to break with tradition in order to form today this ecosystem of well-being, while respecting Nature and its cycles, the land, the Men – farmers, artisans, artists, producers and freethinkers… – and the beautiful know-how.

Through the Domaine des Etangs, located in the Charente Limousine region, a place of Life and of well-being spread over 2,500 acres, in equilibrium between the Sky and the Earth.

Through the Collection Dragonfly, a universal and universalist collection of contemporary and ethnic art, minerals, objects and books, all channelling a message of wisdom, knowledge and heritage.

Through Créations Dragonfly, a line of objects that place the spotlight on the know-how of artisans, respectful of time and of natural resources. Through books, a selection of products and objects related to Nature and its observation, as well as specialties by local producers… which will soon complement the range.

And, today, through opening this “window”,, which will, I hope, reach your heart and your eyes, perhaps fill you with wonder, make you smile and, above all, reconnect you with the essential principles of Nature.

The Craftsman

Richard Orfèvre

Dans l’atelier Richard, l’un des derniers orfèvres cuilléristes de France, Jean-Pierre Cottet-Dubreuil forge, lamine, allonge et estampe des lingots d’argent pour y faire apparaître fourchettes, couteaux et cuillères… Lorsqu’on lui demande de se décrire, il répond avec une voix douce : « Je suis un forgeron gastronome. »

Depuis 2012, date à laquelle il a racheté l’atelier Richard dans lequel il travaillait depuis dix ans, il a perpétué la tradition séculaire du métier tout en adaptant ses gestes et ses outils pour répondre aux demandes variées des designers contemporains.

Lors de notre première visite à l’atelier, notre œil a été attiré par un mandrin à la douceur oblongue. Un outil destiné à repousser le métal et créer des courbes régulières. Patiné par le temps et le travail, il avait été offert à Jean-Pierre Cottet-Dubreuil par son prédécesseur. C’est de sa forme et de l’histoire transmise de génération en génération que sont nés les vases et le bougeoir Gallye.

The Creation

It is a set composed of 3 vases and a candlestick shaped like a butternut, a curvaceous squash which lends itself to caresses.

It is named after the original “Fermes de Gally”, a tribute to one of the first vegetable gardens created in the 10th century and which still operates today.
They could grow in the heart of that vegetable garden or the one located in the Domaine des Etangs and one day, one week, bear the finest of flowers.
