Editor's Notes

The Hercule pitcher from Astier de Villatte is a testament to the Parisian-based 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 Hercule pitcher is made using techniques from the Middle Ages which involve moulding a sheet of handmade 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. Characterised by its patterned exterior and idiosyncratic spout, the jug 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, it romances and imparts a sense of nostalgia into its owner. Arrange with other serveware in the collection to breathe an air of authenticity into your dining collection.

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

“We ask people to produce with a good spirit so the pieces look almost alive.”
Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, Astier founders
