The story of Gaston the Burgundian Snail.
In November 2013 as part of an exercise intended for his apprentice, Hervé Bégin, a locksmith & metalworker from Is-sur-Tille (Côte-d’Or) created Gaston l’Escargot Bourguignon, from a blade of skillfully worked steel pierced on the top with a hole.
The result was a functional object, but when Véronique, his wife saw the finished snail she had the great idea of using the hole on top to place a candle.
Solid, resistant, refined and stylish, Gaston now finds a home in all sorts of places, in the home, in the office, or even in the garden.

You can find Gaston on the Place Carnot in Beaune town center on November 17th, 18th and 19th 2023
