Born in 1956
After a scientific baccalaureate, he entered the National School of Applied Arts and Crafts, Olivier de Serres, in Paris.
The school provides a varied education. Eric chooses stained glass as specialty. For the infinite possibilities he feels to work linked to color, to light, and his attraction for an artistic and technical approach at the same time.
As soon as he left school in 1979, he took over a workshop in Issy les Moulineaux from JJK RAY.
Taking over a workshop was for him the way to lead a professional experience and a creative adventure. Artist and entrepreneur, creator and manager, it is a question of giving oneself the means to create, to express oneself, to exist through one's art.
1979 - 1988 "Eric Bonte stained glass", Issy les Moulineaux
During all these years he was entrusted with prestigious projects, for the Plaza Athénée, or the Raphael hotel in Paris, for the head office of Cap Gémini Sogetti in Paris.
