The Lalique Museum is staging a new exhibition this summer focusing on technical skills, through the work of photographer Karine Faby.
The exhibition consists of triptychs featuring an artisan, a skill and a tool.
For each photograph there is a short explanation from the artisan, to complete the illustration of the task. Some thirty jobs have been chosen out of the total that make up the diversity of skills required, giving an overview of the functions required to run the crystal works: the hot glassmaking technique, of course, but also the fireclay pots, mould making, decoration, signature, lost wax, logistics and so on.
Each stage requires a specific skill or technique that, together, provide the know how to create exceptional pieces at Wingen-sur-Moder, which are then ready to leave the factory, taking their magical aura on a journey to enchant the world.
from 15 June to 1 November
