Description

Maison Intègre is a collective of artisans in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso brought together by Ambre Jarno in 2017. The workshop was founded with mission to foster one of West Africa's long craftsmanship lineages, and bridge the craftsmen's work and cultural heritage to the world through ongoing collaborations with international guest artists. With relentless efforts and commitment, Maison Intègre founder Ambre Jarno and the team of Burkinabe artisans carry on the lost wax bronze casting technique that has largely remained unchanged since its inception millennia ago.

Resulting from the immersive collaboration of French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance and Maison Intègre's metalsmiths, this series of eight sculptural wall pieces is an homage to the expressive nature of West African ritual masks.

Maison Intègre

Maison Intègre is an Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso-based bronze workshop fostering West Africa's long lineage of craftsmanship. Founded by Ambre Jarno in 2017, Maison Intègre's Burkinabe artisans carry on the lost wax bronze casting technique that has largely remained unchanged since its inception millennia ago.

In 2022, the studio built a comprehensive workshop to support the artisanship of fifteen artisans, a meaningful step to protect the craft traditions and provide a livelihood for the artisans. Jarno cultivates dialogue between the artisans of Maison Intègre and bronzesmiths of her native France, who have had the opportunity to visit the workshop in Ouagadougou to share their respective time-honored techniques. 
 
Maison Intègre invites contemporary designers to develop pieces or cohesive collections. The inaugural collection brings the artisans in conversation with Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance to create a collection of seven sculpture pieces that embody and draw inspiration from the vernacular architecture and design of Burkina Faso.
