Giuseppe Benedetto, stonecutter and glassblower, creates objects with the goal of capturing and stopping time in an object.
Across from a majestic fjord, Giuseppe Benedetto, Italian by birth but firmly rooted in Québec, has been practising his craft for 40 years. In his workshop, this tireless craftsman transforms stones from Québec and elsewhere into jewelry, decorative or utilitarian objects, and original works of art. Come and watch him cut, polish and engrave stones such as amazonite, hypersthene and labradorite. He even welcomes you in participating in some of the transformation stages where you can experience the beauty of these raw materials.
