Cyriaque Ambroise works between London and the Morvan Regional Natural Park in Burgundy, France. From his open-air workshops, he creates wooden funiture and utensils dedicated to the tea ceremony.

As a gesture aesthete, he refuses the use of machines and only uses simple hand tools; whose daily use has become over the years a meditative practice. Fallen branches and trunks ethically harvested constitute his main material, that he carves according to the shapes while sublimating imperfections.

Without academic training, he has learnt by himself with advice from European and Japanese craftsmen. His slow and measured technique allows him to reveal the inner nature of the tree, while evoking emotions and sensations around him: the shadow of the foliage undulating in a gentle breeze or the sound of the falling rain ...

His pieces are sensitive and delicate, through them he shares the vision of natural beauty found in simplicity and sobriety. For him, it’s all about present moment and contemplation: following the seasons, taking the time to do things according to the natural rhythm of the elements; appreciate the beauty of ephemeral and modest things.

Cyriaque Ambroise likes wandering in parks and forests to escape the hectic pace of the modern world. To find inspiration, he is used to meditate in the canopy of trees. The resulting creations are an honest reflection of a slow way of life, close to nature.
