Created with the great talent of designer-carpenter Sylvain Tremblay (today deceased), these salt and pepper mills are as functional as they are esthetic and will enhance your table setting in the blink of an eye. Thanks to a duo of passionate artists who wish to perpetuate the work of their designer, these little works of art will now be made in Val-des-Sources.
The recipient of several awards, Sylvain Tremblay was a well-known exhibitor of the Salon des Métiers d’Art. His pepper and salt mills, as esthetic as they are durable, were quite popular here. He developed his love for carpentry, and all the different wood essences at a very young age, while still at his father’s side. After completing his studies in design at l’École des Beaux-Arts, he specialized in creating furniture and accessories, among these, his famous salt and pepper mills, which have become a great success of this artist. As early as in 1998, he devoted his time exclusively to making these mills in his Saint-Colomban workshop, in the Laurentians. A career that ended abruptly with his death in 2019.
