Ornamental sculpture

The Craftsman

You know the Louvre for the works on display inside, but have you ever paid particular attention to the details of its facade? Orléans Cathedral is famous for its history, but the ravages of time and weathering have eliminated its decorations and sculptures.

With a passion for Art and History, after obtaining a CAP in stone carving, Olivier specialized in ornamental sculpture in old buildings in 2014. His love of manual work and old stone has led him to work as a freelancer for major companies involved in the renovation of historic monuments, such as Tollis (75) or Bouvier (30), or to collaborate with stone-cutting companies in the Centre region, notably Soupiron (41) and Jude (37).

With his head in the clouds (or stone dust), he has always enjoyed observing and learning about these buildings that have stood the test of time.

You’ll be able to admire his work, which has restored splendor to places such as the Palais du Louvre, La Collégiale de Vitry-le-François, the Hôtel Le Lutétia and private gardens, embellished by original creations for private clients.

His workshop is located in the Loir-et-Cher region near Blois.


The Ornament

Sculptural ornamentation in stone is an ancient art form with a rich history. Transcending mere decoration to become a true mirror of human creativity, culture and history. This tradition dates back to Antiquity, but reached its apogee in medieval Europe, where Gothic cathedrals were adorned with intricate sculptures depicting biblical scenes and religious figures. These ornaments had deep symbolic meaning.

Over the centuries, stone ornamentation has evolved to reflect the artistic and cultural trends of each era.
