COLLABORATION WITH THE MEISENTHAL GLASSWORKS

 

The site of the former Meisenthal glassworks is today the privileged witness of a second breath of life and an unusual marriage between memory and modernity. The two editions of the exclusive Christmas bauble and the exceptional Advent Calendar were born from the work of the glassblowers, who are working to preserve traditional glassmaking savoir-faire.

The new edition of the Advent Calendar, as elegant as it is unique, is available in two exceptional limited editions in collaboration with the Centre International d'Art Verrier de Meisenthal, a French workshop that combines traditional glassmaking skills with contemporary creation.

Pierre Hermé and the master glassmakers of Meisenthal, guided by their insatiable desire to sublimate the material, have imagined together an exceptional piece, both gourmand and poetic... Two glass Christmas ornaments, one pink and the other lavender blue, blown using ancestral techniques.

Nestled in the center of the Advent calendar filled with chocolate candies and delicacies to be discovered and enjoyed throughout the month of December, the Meisenthal Christmas bauble celebrates the collaboration between two companies that share the values of transmission and love of fine workmanship.

For this project, the Meisenthal glassmakers have endeavored to reproduce the movements of the Safia Ouares' fresco design. Disseminated directly in the hot work phase, a delicately undulating fairy spiral gives each Christmas bauble a unique and poetic character.

 

 

 

 

In 1999, with the support of former glassmakers, the CIAV saved the traditional techniques of blowing Christmas baubles as practised in the neighbouring village of Goetzenbruck between 1858 and 1964. As the heir to this know-how saved from extinction, the CIAV has since confronted these ancestral gestures with contemporary questions within the framework of a collection of Christmas ornaments made each winter in its workshops.

The International Centre for Glass Art (CIAV), established since 1992 on the wasteland of the Meisenthal glassworks (1704-1969) in East Moselle, in the heart of the Pays de Bitche, aims to take the glassmaking heritage of its territory to new horizons.
