The Language of Stone
For the three brothers – Jean-Christophe, Cyril and Régis Rivals – at the helm of the Parlons Pierre workshop, founded by their father who was a quarryman, working with stone has become a true language.
Parlons Pierre chisels on demand a dozen of various stone works, whether for the needs of a private clientele or for the restoration of historic buildings.
They love reclaiming ancient materials to give them a new life in their park, where stones from several ages can be found together on display.
Parlons Pierre took part in the Made in Town / Montagne Noire exhibition, which was held from October 21, 2015 to February 13, 2016 at Made in Town in Paris.
