Once there was a workshop ...

Our history

...In the beginning a passion

FIGURART the collections workshop was born from the meeting between the History and the crafts. Creator of figurines and miniatures we develop objects around specific themes intended for the general public such as collectors in order to promote the heritage alive and culture.

Our products aim to enhancement places and tradition by offering ranges made custom made in order to meet the requirements and peculiarities of our partners.


Helen Bourch, a painter from Minsk and French by adoption, embodies the very essence of international artistic talent in the service of “Made in France”. Having traced her path since her studies in design and applied art, passionate about the arts, she discovered miniatures before specializing in them.

Based in Compiègne, Helen devotes her talent to enriching historical and cultural heritage. By merging her academic know-how with new technologies, she creates astonishing and atypical objects which demonstrate a harmony  possible between tradition and modernity; French elegance.

Locally made...

Installed at Compiègne in Oise we have our own workshop design and a network  of French artisans in order to offer a wide range of solutions. If all our projects are designed on site, we favor as much as possible the French production in order to guarantee a requirement qualitative but also greater flexibility towards our customers while limiting the impact on environment by choice and traceability materials used.


Specializing in the creation of figurines, that is to say small-sized sculptures on all subjects as well as miniatures in wood or resin, we develop partnerships with historical places wishing to offer their visitors quality products to moderate price.

Thus, we hope to promote and participate in the transmission of both small and large History by transcribing through our creations as faithfully as possible, the unique identity of a local and universal heritage.
