Atelier Jouvence Custom Stoneworks works closely with architects, interior designers, builders, and homeowners to create stunning, custom-designed stonework in a wide array of imported and domestic natural stone — all hand-carved by Master Stone Carver Olivier Dumont and his team of skilled artisans. We use only the finest quality natural limestone and marble to hand-carve our fireplaces, mantels, fountains, staircases, columns and capitals, range hoods, and more.
Master carver Olivier Dumont is a native of Dijon, France, trained in traditional stone carving techniques by some of Europe’s top carvers. Atelier Jouvence, founded in 2000, is run by Olivier and his American partner, Sonia Dumont.
Atelier Jouvence Custom Stoneworks offers you the following:
Respect for Design
All Atelier Jouvence stonework is designed with respect for the traditional styles that characterized the great periods of architecture, from the Gothic era, through the Renaissance and Classical periods, up through Modern times. We have taken the best elements of design from these periods to create our own original carved stone works, inspired by the master stone carvers and architects of the past. See our standard fireplace mantels and range hoods, or browse our custom stonework to see the range of styles we offer.
Old World Craftsmanship
All stonework is produced by French Master Carver Olivier Dumont and his team of artisans, all trained in traditional Old World carving methods. We carve every piece with the greatest respect for proportion and accuracy of detail. Learn more about Olivier Dumont and his extensive stone carving experience.
