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.

The 'Oval Terrine', again from the archive, bears either a large fish or sanglier (wild boar) on the lid and were made to house fish mousse and pork pâté, however one need not be purist about these things and I think that they are not only beautiful but practical to serve and store a variety of dishes  - great on the dresser too when not in use! I have a pig theme on mine so it with fit in nicely next to my giant boar tureen 'Sir Francis Bacon’!
