A lovely plate with a bee at the center. Measures 5" in diameter.
Handmade in France by Astier de Villatte in collaboration with John Derian.
Astier de Villatte makes every one of their ceramic pieces by hand. It is quite a sight to see. Beautiful hands making these incredible pieces. Made of a black earthenware sourced from the outskirts of Paris, and covered in porcelain. The combination of materials makes for very refined finished pieces with a hint of the hand and process showing through the porcelain. Astier pieces mix beautifully with many different styles- it has a versatility we look for in all the things we carry in our shop.
John Derian makes decoupage glass plates, bowls, decorative objects and much more surrounding his passion for printed matter and ephemera. He works in collaboration with Astier de Villatte on many pieces- their work together combines the best of both worlds <3
