About Jérôme Blanc

Jérôme Blanc was born in Geneva in 1978 and grew up in a family keen on promoting creativity. After five years of study at the School of Arts and Crafts in Geneva in woodworking and carpentry, obtaining his degrees in 1998 and 1999.

While in Australia he perfected his knowledge of English and was first introduced to woodturning. This enduring revelation gave rise to an ever growing interest and would entice him always closer to wood carving. Back in Geneva, he set up his own woodworking, sculpture and woodturning business, while going away regularly in order to learn from French wood turner masters (Marc Ricourt; Jean-François Escoulen; Alain Mailland).

His practice has earned him several awards (especially the 1st Prize at the European Contest of the Art of Woodturning in Bréville in 2006; the 1st Prize Pop Purchase Award from the American Association of Woodturners in 2009; the 1st Prize at Arts Pluriels - Château de Réchy in 2011, a selection for the Prix Jumelles in 2011) and some residencies, among which the International Woodturning Exchange in Philadelphia in 2009, one of the most recognized woodturning events. He’s also invited to give demonstrations at symposiums organized by national professional associations (United States, France, Australia, Great-Britain).

Jérôme Blanc regularly takes part in exhibitions in Switzerland, Europe and the United States. His works have been acquired by various public and private institutions, such as the Musée Départemental du Bugey-Valromey, The Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia and the AAW Gallery of Wood Art in St Paul, Minnesota.
