MARBRERIE D’ART CAUDRON - (93): NEWS
La Marbrerie d'Art Caudron participated in the Biennale Internationale des Métiers d'Art et de la Création at the Grand Palais. It was a great opportunity to present the Bridge Collection, designed and handcrafted by Christian Caudron.
However, the star of the exhibition was undoubtedly the Lamborghini sculpture, conceived by Christian and carved in a block of white marble "P" with subtle veining and incrustations in fine black marble and rock crystal.
After the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France obtained this year, the Caudron workshop was awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label. This label, presented by the Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Sector, is a stamp of craftsmanship and industrial excellence, a representation of the "Made in France" spirit and virtuosity.
The labelling process for EPVs is highly competitive. In particular, it distinguishes companies capable of working on unusual projects, proposing innovative solutions tailored to meet the most demanding needs of the most demanding customers.
In all fields, from traditional to state of the art techniques, these companies have a common talent: that of offering the customised service.
Christian Caudron was invited to the Elysee Palace on 6 July for a reception in honour of the Best Craftsmen of France. This title rewards professionals for the excellence of their know-how and dexterity. Awarded to Christian Caudron in the "Marble Work" category, this distinction confirms his rigorous work and his professional skills perfected over the past thirty-five years.
The designer, Alexandre Echasseriau, has teamed up with the marble craft industry to design the Marble Sound System, an acoustic enclosure amplified by the marble resonance box. This project was supported by the Audi Talents Awards event and exhibited in the chapel’s nave of the Arts and Crafts Museum during the D’DAYS.
Marble bends to all projects! Proof of the pudding in a picture; in collaboration with Normal Studio x Atelier Caudron: a perforated table top placed on trestles, in marble, based on the notions of lightness and transparency.

Nicolas Milhé, Montaigne, 2014 Statue carved in Pierre de bourgogne (65×45x190cm), Pedestal in fine black marble from Belgium (70x70x135cm).
The inauguration of the statue of Montaigne de Nicolas Milhé, done by l'atelier Caudron will be held on 29 May 2015 at the Cour d'Appel de Bordeaux. The sculpture of Montaigne- seen in a modern outfit- has been made possible thanks to a 3D scan of a live model that has been then sketched by the robot. The marblers team has then brought the finishing touches to the statue and fixed it in the Salle des Pas Perdus of the Palais de Justice de Bordeaux.

Christian Caudron was conferred with the title of «Meilleur ouvrier de France» in the marble works category.

This title recognises the excellent know-how and craftsmanship of such professionals. It is proof of the hard work and professional competencies that Christian Caudron has been perfecting for the past thirty-five years.
