Jonathan Soulié is a brass maker, a demanding specialty within the arts and crafts professions where the artist interprets the beauty of the world and works to transform craftsmanship through design and innovation without ever losing its primary meaning: “the work of the hand” .
Jonathan perpetuates 4000-year-old gestures, which he is one of the few still to use. Indeed, some of his works are produced without any contemporary assembly technique, assembled in a single piece of metal using the power of the wrist. This process allows him to give life to his works and to “transmit a soul” to them.
