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

Atelier du Verre

Martine Durand Gasselin decorates glass. She blows simple shapes and adorns them with oxides and metallic salts in order to reveal emerald greens, ink blacks, sea blues. She adds threads and shadows to the molten material, blowing transparent reliefs.

“Blowing glass is one of the languages of the hand. So simple in fact that blowing a glass requires one year of training… while duplicating it requires ten years”.

Martine Durand-Gasslin - Atelier du Verre

She learned her art in Sweden, at the Orrefors school of glass, following a hike that took her from Rennes to Stockholm.
It is probably this journey in the wind, the rain and under a sky scattered with cloudy sunny spells which inspired us as we imagined the models she would produce for Dragonfly. We gave each of them the name of a meteorological phenomenon: Giboulée (Rain), Tornade (Tornado) or Givre (Frost)…

The Object

With its endless spiral, this glass first drinks in one’s gaze before one carries to one’s lips.
