Welcome to the video element of Summer 2023. 
A short film made with Francis Bourjot, the last lapidaire-tourneur in France.

I met Francis at his garden gate one hot July afternoon whilst insects buzzed around us, a gentle breeze moving through the tree tops and a distant combine gathered in the harvest.
He told me about the history of the workshop, about his time running the business and the future he now faces as he moves into retirement.
