Astier de Villatte’s Gigi candlestick is crafted from black terracotta clay – sourced from the quarries in the Paris Basin – and finished with a milky-white glaze. It’s made by hand by one of the 40 artisans in the Paris workshop, where minute variations reflect the hand of the maker. A slim, dented stem juxtaposes beautifully with a textured, rounded base designed to prevent wax from dripping onto the table.

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.
