Touret, Jean

(1916 - 2004)

Jean Touret (1916 - 2004) began a career as a painter and then turned towards woodcarving. All his life he continued his aesthetic research by experimenting unconventional use of a variety of materials: wood, paper, copper, zinc, bronze, plexiglass, ceramics and concrete.

In 1950 he started the collective Artisans de Marolles, in the town of the same name, where craftsmen from different fields worked together; carpenters, an ironworker, basket maker and ceramist. Touret was the artistic director. In the early 1960s, Touret became more occupied with his sculptural work and commissions for churces, leaving more responsibility to the other artisans, until he resigned in 1964.


For nearly two decades, the collection of Bloomberry has been driven by the cultural reference between architecture, art and design.

The quality of our collection is reflected in the sophistication of craftsmanship and the character of the scars of time. Our restoration workshops are built around the same principal and work to the highest degree of craftsmanship.

Bloomberry is housed in a former textile factory and is located near Maastricht, in the south of The Netherlands. Within an hour of Antwerp and Cologne. Within two hours from Amsterdam and four hours from Paris.

Bloomberry offers worldwide shipping.
