Craft Competition: Âmes d'Œuvres

Craft Competition: Âmes d’Œuvres

The Fondation Etrillard launches the ‘‘Âmes d'Œuvres’’ competition.

This new competition promotes the creativity, innovation, and know-how of craftspeople, while encouraging interdisciplinarity.

To participate in this new award, candidates must reinterpret one of the key pieces in the Fondation Etrillard’s collection, by imagining an original work, according to pre-established criteria. For this first edition 2023-24, the chosen piece is an armchair: La Bergère du débotté.

The winner will produce his or her creation, which will be exhibited and become part of the Fondation Etrillard's collection.
