Our establishment is in a very rural valley, very little urbanised, almost depopulated. It is difficult in many respects, but for our work it is an asset. We benefit from quality materials as well as from a natural and quiet environment.
Yes, that's very true. We do pay attention to it. For my part, I choose to work almost exclusively with charcoal made in the workshop rather than with fossil fuels such as gas or mineral coal. In the reconstruction of the workshop, in the management of our business waste, in our interaction with the forest. Ecology is the absolute priority of our era; no professional activity should overlook this for reasons of profit.
In ironwork, I quite often work on handrails for walls in village streets and for stairs. My clients for these are both individuals and local authorities. Apart from that, my projects are very varied. I mainly work to order.
We have a few projects not directly related to the forge, outside. In the long term, we would like to create a small sunny enclave with fruit trees, vines, a stone bread oven, a low furnace... We would also like to make customer reception a little nicer.
It is difficult to speak of complementarity on a technical level. Basically, we live together and help each other out when necessary, and it is especially nice to be able to work with a friend. It is also very beneficial to be able to ask the opinion of an outside person when a problem arises, from time to time. The work required of us for the rehabilitation of the place would have been, I believe, unthinkable alone, for him or for me.
Up to now, we tend to collaborate in particular when my ironwork sites become too large and I need someone to lend me a hand. But in the future who knows!
The passing on of knowledge is very important, mainly because we ourselves have benefitted from it, so we must pass the torch on. When you are passionate about something, you like to share that passion. Me, I like that, the more you explain something, the more you understand it yourself. We plan to offer introductory courses soon.
We work to order via email, social networks and telephone. With respect to our designs, we welcome visitors on site, at the forge in Cagnano. We also exhibit on Facebook and a merchant site is being created.
