It is thanks to these synergies between know-how, this type of modern and creative initiative, that we can say that craftsmanship is being reinvented.

It has continued to evolve to become today a large cultural movement and invest our living rooms, our living rooms, our kitchens, our festive tables, as during this beautiful association between the Faïencerie de Charolles, the Lyon florist “Franck Hernandez” and the “Paul Bocuse” restaurant.
