Astier de Villatte ceramics dinnerware are entirely handmade in Paris and inspired by 18th and 19th century designs. Made of black terracotta clay and glazed in milky white, the pieces are extremely durable yet surprisingly light to the touch making them perfect for everyday use.
Thanks to their signature combination of white glaze on top of dark clay, the edges and surface designs are slightly accented with darker tones. 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.
