‘Moine Head’ Decorative Plaster Piece | La Soufflerie
Moine Head is part of our series of plaster decorative pieces.
Years ago, Sebastien (one of our founders) was lucky enough to work on a restoration project of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris. He found these little heads that were about 200 years old in the basement of the church and was able to keep some of them. They were made by a technique used at the time of Rodin. The sculptors handmade each piece separately: heads, arms, legs, torsos. Then they put the pieces together to form a body. Today, we are happy to be able to offer these very special pieces casted from molds made from the original sculptures of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris.
Since these are handmade, there may be a slight variation. We think it makes the products all the more lovely!

Established in 2007, La Soufflerie is a non-profit, family owned and operated association ran by Sebastien and Valentina Nobile that aims to preserve the art of ancestral glassblowing. They work in our studio-workshop in Paris to design original and timeless products from 100% recycled glass.
They use traditional tools and processes to create original, timeless products from recycled glass. These designs are then handblown by expert glassblowing craftsmen.
