An Overview

Handcrafted pottery made in Rustrel in the Pays d’Apt

A carefully worked earthenware

  • Turning then shaping the clay and turning again to finish the piece
  • Engober before the decoration, red, blue, green … The colors (long live the color) fly on my pots
  • The “sgraffito” comes afterwards, removing the material to make chips of earth and reveal the pattern
  • A first firing is done at 980 degrees then a second one with enamel (glass powder which is fired at high temperature and vitrifies)
  • All this is created in my workshop in Rustrel near the Luberon in Provence, with the “sun”
