Each creation from Astier de Villatte has a unique craft story that starts and finishes with the same pair of hands – the initials of which are faintly engraved on the base. The Joséphine raised bowl is no exception, brought to life in the Parisian workshop where black terracotta clay is shaped and dipped in a bright-white glaze. It’s a lovely centrepiece to fill with fruits and sweet treats, and is complete with ornate, braided detailing.

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.
