Romuald and Sophie

Miroitier of formation, it is the meeting with a violin maker which brought Romuald to the work of the slate, the material being able to be worked in many ways.
The roles of the lovers agree perfectly: Romuald creates, Sophie assembles and ensures the professional relations of the couple of creators.

Slate a passion

Works made of natural slate

Romuald and Sophie arrived in Rochefort-en-Terre, several years ago. The city with its old stones and romantic ruins, totally seduced them. It’s been 10 years since Romuald Creations exists and their company has blown out its 6 candles.

“We thought slate would be recluse forever on our roofs. That was without counting on the creativity of Romuald. In his workshop, the artisan-artist metamorphoses the fine blue-gray stone into mood lamps, wall sconces, hand or wall mirrors, and other clocks.

His tools? The saw, to cut the natural slate, new or salvaged; the pencil, to lay down his floral and geometric patterns; and the drill, to bring them to life.

Original and unique creations

These lace fragments will serve as decorations for mirrors and clocks and will take on, under the action of linseed oil, the appearance of leather or some precious metal.

Other pieces, sewn together, will give rise to original and unique lamps and lampadaires. Sieved by Romuald’s pointillist patterns, the light then stretches out, warm and intimate, on the walls and ceiling, and why not up to the slate roof!” Vincent de Longueville

Romuald and Sophie's approach

“We are fortunate to be free to create, we work together to make a cold and inert material warm and alive through the light we incorporate. Our goal, to add softness to our creations through our sculptures.”
