Editor's notes

This salad 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 large Adélaïde salad 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 involves a drying time of up to one month. Characterised by a knobbly exterior and exposed clay, the salad bowl 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

About

Based out of an antique Bastille workshop that used to belong to Napoleon’s personal silversmith, Astier de Villatte is an utterly unique and unmistakably French homeware brand. Taking inspiration from sources as peculiar as the Paris Commune and the milky ceramics of the early 19th century, the brand creates homeware that has become much-loved in its native Paris and around the world. Special attention should be paid to its exquisitely evocative scented candles, which can take you back centuries. Shop the online edit here, or discover the full range in-store.
