Overview of the ornament range

For over a century and a half Les Ateliers d’Art Français have been manufacturing zinc and copper roof ornaments.

The vocation of VMZINC is to perpetuate the roof ornament tradition and to pass a unique art form on to future generations of which the Ateliers d’Art Français are currently the reference. Over the years, we have collected old catalogues, architect’s drawings and stamping dies so that we can produce historic parts identically and thereby work to preserve our heritage. 

Each project is a new challenge. Ornamental metal workers try and try again, spending the time needed to find or rediscover an old decoration, define its exact shape, finely remodel it and adapt it to changes in supports and framework.
