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”, dragonfly.fr, 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 Craftsmen

Le Chêne Vert

Run by Marie Lourd, the pottery workshop Le Chêne Vert is an exclusive Member of Ateliers d'Art de France (the French professional fine craft federation) and boasts the label “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (living heritage company).
We visited this workshop located in Anduze to discover its perfectly mastered technique of stamping and rope coiling combined with very fine glazes.

“We strive each day to place aesthetics at the service of embellishment, to promote beauty. And we do this by perpetuating the know-how of a beautiful tradition”.

The process of rope coil pottery consists in coiling a rope around a plywood structure which gives it its rough shape. It enables to produce exceptional pieces, both in size and shape, and leaves inside the pottery the print of the rope that was used for its production.

The Creation

Anduze pottery is renowned for its timeless distinctive shape. Resembling huge beakers moulded by divine hands, they were used to preserve citrus fruit.
We have appropriated them to create a table and a stool that respect the historical shape and technique. With its half-circle handles to move it around as you wish, the stool matches the small table, allowing numerous combinations outdoors as well as indoors.

Care instructions

La céramique jouit d’une forte résistance aux rayures et à la chaleur. Vos objets en céramique peuvent être nettoyés avec une brosse douce trempée dans de l’eau savonneuse puis rincés à l’eau clair. Les éponges de nettoyage en métal et autres produits abrasifs ne sont pas adaptés et peuvent entraîner des différences de brillance ou une dégradation de l’émail.
