Astier de Villatte
Cube Soup Plate
Slurp stews and soup in style with the Cube soup plate from Astier de Villatte.
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 Cube soup plate 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. Its repeating structure evokes the geometry of the natural world, from honeycomb sheets to turtle shells and minute cell formations. Each handmade piece tells a beautiful story, it romances and imparts a sense of nostalgia into its owner. Partner with a glazed bowl from the collection to breathe an air of authenticity into your dining collection.
