The Terre de Verre workshop

Creating and restoring stained glass, fusing glass and painting, Adeline Rincent works the fragility of glass in the most beautiful of ways in her Terre de Verre workshop. Passionate and fascinating, she’s happy to share the ins and outs of her art, where beauty lies in the details. A visit to her studio is also an opportunity to treat yourself to a beautiful souvenir! In all transparency, we’re crazy about Tiffany lamps.

Menton earthenware

Apron on and sticky clay in hand, Marie Hélène Roudier is ready to create wonders. Armed with her legendary dexterity, and a healthy dose of creativity, she fashions Faïences Mentonnaises… The fruit of a true tradition! She confides in us that she has taken up the torch from Eugène Perret-Gentil, who was already decorating Menton’s lemon ceramics in 1896. Here, time passes, talent is passed on… But excellence never fades!
