Astier de Villatte Octave Platter
Astier de Villatte is celebrated for being the one and only studio in Paris to hold and harbour the traditions of artisanal ceramic production. Restoring the ancestral systems of moulding and stamping, the Octave platter is made using handcrafting techniques from the Middle Ages which involve moulding a handmade sheet of clay, double firing the ‘biscuit’ piece and glazing the product in white enamel – a lengthy process that involves a drying time of up to one month. Characterised by an octagonal silhouette, the platter is engraved with the brand’s signature crest - depicting an interlacing A & V - alongside the initials of one of the 40 master artisans who created it.
