French term or phrase: bénitiers
"Le modèle travaillé en plis et en points boules ondule sous la création de creusets et de bénitiers. La matière vibre en guidant sa volonté. L’acte créatif demande un subtil équilibre entre la matière et le couturier."

This is from the text for a book of photographs. Here we have pictures of a dressmaker in full flow, creating new designs in his atelier.

The previous sentence is "La thématique définie, je prends mon crayon pour esquisser des modèles. J’apprécie cette phase, mélange de fantaisie, de rêve et de folie."

It is not just bénitiers, it is the whole first sentence that is troubling me!

Explanation:
Perhaps this is referring to cowl necklines... as this is a photo book does the photo help at all?
