From the Bourgogne region in the so called 'ceramics valley' of central France from a small pottery founded in 1875. Like many craft industries, French stoneware had experienced a rapid decline in popularity which began in the 1980's with the rise of the supermarkets and cheaper Chinese goods. However this pottery was saved by Corinne Jourdain Gros, a woman with a passion for companies that exemplify Gallic culture. She has restored its fortunes and they now make wonderful, traditional pieces as well as the little pots that house Maille mustard! I am a huge fan and so pleased to receive our first order.
I have chosen classic 'Terrine' bowls in three sizes so they fit inside each other for easy storage. These objects were originally used by butchers for pâtés, aspics, potted meats etc however they are incredibly useful for the preparation and presentation of food and can be used as mixing bowls as a gratin dish, to serve salads etc. The natural stoneware body is lined in a high gloss glaze which spills over the rim (the olive is matt inside and out) and the colours are extremely sophisticated including a terribly chic Ink Blue and a joyous Primrose.
