Astier de Villatte Fifine Small Saucer

€60

Astier de Villatte’s love for the imperfect materialises in inconsistencies with the glaze and slightly askew silhouettes – details that come to the fore in the Fifine saucer. Charming in its asymmetry, it features six petals of varying shapes and sizes.

Astier de Villatte

Old friends Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte met at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, leading to the launch of Astier de Villatte in 1996. Since the beginning, they’ve been charmed with ideas of the imperfect, finding beauty in uneven glazes, dark pockmarks and subtle ripples. But these details only emphasise the craft tale behind each piece – stories that start with a single sheet of black terracotta clay extracted from Parisian quarries. They follow traditional Roman methods to bring each ‘dream object’ to life, shaping and inscribing each one with the potter’s initials and finishing with a high-shine white porcelain glaze.
