Jean Noël Buatois à la presse

By the way

Jean Noël Buatois

I chose to marry my job in its full extent, of the drawing in the forge, the mechanics in the last gestures on the workbench to embody my sense of the absolute, in these objects.

And it lasts for 20 years...

The grace smiled to me in several occasions. I "invented" a new manufacturing process of the steel damasked in 2008, " organic damask ", during a personal exhibition to the museum of the Fine arts of Dijon. In 2011, I saw awarding the prestigious " Prize for the intelligence of the hand " of the foundation Bettencourt. I have the happiness of working for customers for whom I realize most of the time creations and academician's sword came recently to join it...
He takes out of me as in first in the daytime new ways to be experimented...
