In the Richard Orfèvre workshop, one of the last silversmiths specialized in cutlery in France, Jean-Pierre Cottet-Dubreuil crafts, laminates, lengthens and stamps silver ingots in which he sculpts forks, knives and spoons… When asked to describe himself, he answers in a soft voice: “I am a gourmet blacksmith”.
Since 2012, when he took over the Richard Orfèvre workshop in which he had been working for ten years, he has nurtured the heritage of the craft while adapting his gestures and tools to cater to an array of requests from contemporary designers.
When we first visited the Workshop, a softly oblong mandrel caught our attention. A tool designed to work the metal and create regular curves. Marked by the patina of time and work, it had been gifted to Jean-Pierre Cottet-Dubreuil by his predecessor. Its shape and its history, passed on from one generation to the next, inspired the Gallye vases and candlestick.
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.
