Astier de Villatte
Fifine Long Bowl
This Fifine long bowl 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 Fifine long bowl 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 requires a drying time of up to one month. The organic piece is manipulated into a rectangular form with elongated dints and a scalloped rim. Arrange with other serveware in the collection to breathe an air of authenticity into your table setting.
Artisanal production gives each ceramic object a unique aspect, meaning products may slightly vary.
