The BCGE supports the Prix de l’Artisanat

The award ceremony for the Prix de l'Artisanat 2017 (the Craftsmanship award) was held on 30 October at the Palais Eynard in the presence of the State Councillor Pierre Maudet, the Mayor of Geneva Rémy Pagani, Thierry Apothéloz, Chairman of the Geneva Municipalities Association and Claude Bagnoud, Member of the Board of the Banque cantonale de Genève and Hélène De Vos Vuadens, Communication and Investor Relations Manager of the BCGE. This year the jury decided to present the award to Belén Ferrier, gilder-framer, a particular and rare craft. The Prix de l'Artisanat has been sponsored by the BCGE since 1999.

Having completed her studies in the hotel industry and tourism, then in humanities, Belén Ferrier chose to work alongside a gilder-framer craftsman who, for five years, shared his know-how with her. In 2006, she opened her own art framing and restoration workshop in the Plainpalais district. Helped by her apprentice, Belén Ferrier produces unique creations using both antique picture frames and contemporary design mouldings. The latter are made employing the same techniques as those used by the Egyptians to gild sarcophagi.

All of Belén Ferrier's frames – wood gilded with gold leaf, with silver leaf, with lacquer finishes, in precious wood or in wrought iron – respect the craftsmanship and personalised approach of this trade which exudes creativity and sensitivity, a true pivotal link between the artist and the collector or gallery owner.

The oldest frames are, in Belén Ferrier's opinion, the most beautiful among her artistic creations, requiring immense care and patience. The frame's function is to feature the work of the artist in its best light and, depending on its style, its format, its colour, its material, can radically change the perception of a work. The video of the award presentation ceremony is online on the lemanbleu website.
