Originally from France, JeanBriac currently lives and works in Barcelona.
After six years learning the skill of stonework in different regions across France, and acquiring valuable knowledge in workshops and building work dedicated to the restoration of historical monuments, JeanBriac had the privilege of coming to Barcelona to participate in the greatest work of Antoni Gaudi, Sagrada Familia, as well as the restoration of the Hospital de Sant Pau (Domenech i Muntaner).
With 18 years of experience in stonework and a special preference for marble, today he is dedicated to his own creations, clearly inspired by the organic world around him, and especially anchored in the principles of sculpture.
Guiding the limits of this robust material towards an unusual delicacy, he searches for a relative thinness. He achieves this through the use of portable electrical machinery and the tools of industrial diamond especially designed for stone work.
Some of the collaborations and historical monuments Jean Briac had work for:
-Hospital de Sant Pau
-Prototype of the “UNICA” bottle, perfume from Adolfo Dominguez with the Estudio Rosa Lázaro
-Block Lamp, designed by Andrew Trotter
