Editor's Notes

The Bird knife rest from Astier de Villatte is a testament to the Parisian brand’s spiritual ethos and fascination with folk art and abandoned objects.

Votary of pre-industrial fabrication, 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 Bird knife rest 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 a sculptural bird design and exposed clay, it 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. Each handmade piece tells a beautiful story, romancing and imparting a sense of nostalgia into its owner. Use it to rest a butter knife during morning breakfast or afternoon tea.

Artisanal production gives each ceramic object a unique aspect, meaning products may slightly vary.
