From as far back as he can remember, Denis Nicolas has been passionate about stone sculpting, an art he learned from his father. In 1994, he opened a shop in Percé, on the Gaspé Peninsula, that soon made a name for itself. Today, he is delighted to have a shop in the Petit Champlain district, where every boutique is unique, attracting a clientele of tourists from all over the world.
Whether for Québec wildlife and marine mammal–inspired sculptures crafted from gemstones like onyx, or handcrafted polished-stone jewelry made with silver and 14-karat gold strands, or a huge selection of stones and minerals, lovers of refined art and jewelry will be delighted by the treasures on display. Visitors are also invited to discover the new concept of this specialty boutique located next door to Le Lapin Sauté, where stone is front and center.
During his career, some of the works by sculptor Denis Nicolas have been presented as awards to various Québec stars and artists, including Bruno Pelletier, Isabelle Boulay, Lise Dion, Patrick Normand, and Marie-Andrée Ostiguy, to name a few. The sculptures were selected for their uniqueness and remarkable quality by organizations such as Réseau des organisateurs de spectacles de l’Est du Québec (ROSEQ). Most recently, Club des ornithologues de la Gaspésie chose one of his works to present as a trophy.
