A soap holder created and made by Stéphane Ouvry
Stéphane is 47 years old and opened his carpentry workshop on 1st February 2010. It is located in the Vosges, Rue des Provinces in Saint-Nabord, near Remiremont - La Coquette.
Inspired by the desire of being creative and the pleasure of working with solid wood, grown without human intervention, his craftsmanship involves high quality natural wood.
Today, our small team trusts him with the task of creating our soap holder.
100% natural solid maple wood
We decided with Stéphane to choose maple wood to make our soap holders because this kind of wood is hard and stable. This tannin-free wood won't stain the bathtub or washbasin.
Wood is a natural and noble material. That’s why variations in color and texture can sometimes happen. It is a living material, meaning it will absorb water and soap, regulating humidity on its own.
Its original color will evolve and change over time. However, it won't deteriorate or become damaged.
No screws or adhesives, carved from solid wood
Stéphane works alone and with his tools, none of them being mechanised or automated.
The maple for his soap holders comes from sawmills close to his home in Lorraine, a very densely wooded area.
With beautiful planks that he cuts with a chainsaw, he sizes them with a handsaw to get the widths. He then alignes and shaves each bit to obtain nice parallelepipeds.
The shaping wheel, the ripper, and the saw band allow him to give each product its final shape and properties.
