Jean-Charles Miot and Laëtitia Andrighetto, both permanent craftsmen joined the Fondation in 2017. Since then, they have been working closely with the resident artists, providing them with technical support and guidance. Both Jean-Charles and Laëtitia received their training at CERFAV, which is a European center for research and training in the glass arts located in Vannes-le-Châtel.
