Wood Sculptor, Molines-en-Queyras, France
  • Handcrafted in France. In a celebration of craftsmanship and manufactoring traditions, we tour each French region to bring you our curated selection of exceptional homeware, gifts and collectibles.

  • Ateliers d’Art de France unites over 6,000 French artisans, selected using three criteria: 1. All pieces handcrafted in an atelier in France. 2. Technical mastery of a specific savoir-faire. 3. Creativity and quality of the pieces.

My work is the result of an intimate partnership with nature and the environment.
Natacha Heitz is a wood sculptor based in the Southern Alps. She works with a single wood species, the Arolla Pine, that she sources locally, in line with her sustainable practice. She is one of the very few female wood carvers, leveraging traditional tools and methods to develop her own approach to fired wood.

Her cRAKoUs are the product of years of experimentation and patience, an encounter between wood, giving shape, and fire, creating texture. The astonishing crackled surface of Natacha Heitz’ pieces is evocative of the Japanese raku pottery used in traditional tea ceremonies.   Her artwork, like the ceremony, is more than the object, it is the process of artistic creation characterized by harmony, respect, purity and tranquility.

Natacha Heitz’ quest for the beautiful is a way to reconnect with the world, through the emotional catharsis of her singular pieces.
