Created by Astier de Villatte in collaboration with Countess Setsuko Klossowska de Rola, a painter (and widow of the painter Balthus). You can just place it as a decorative element or to display off-duty jewels, of course.
Made of black terracotta clay and glazed in milky white, the pieces are extremely durable yet surprisingly light to the touch. The clay shows through in a subtle way that imparts the most wonderful texture.
In an antique Bastille workshop, historically home to Napoleon Bonaparte's own silversmith, a team of twenty ceramicists makes each piece in a traditional style passed down through a family of generations, celebrating its imperfections and ensuring that no two pieces are exactly alike.
Their designs reflect the beauty of imperfection and the timelessness of true artistry. Each piece is a true French art, made with love and attention to detail that honors traditions of the past.
