With each piece from the collection shown above handmade in Paris using black terracotta clay in milky white glaze allowing for the black to peek through ever so slightly, what’s not to cherish about these pieces? While they appear to be quite delicate they are known for being extremely durable and are perfect for everyday use. They are even microwave safe and can be placed into the dishwasher… as if you needed more reasons to want their dishes and mugs… What's not to love? Each piece is slightly unique, containing slight irregularities create an appealing organic shape. Based on 18th and 19th century shapes Astier is a must have able to be passed down generation to generation.
