ASTIER DE VILLATTE
Astier de Villatte was founded in Paris by Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli. Their unique take on ceramics and various home goods are made in a Bastille workshop that used to house Napolean’s silversmith. Beginning with black terracotta, each piece is molded into shape using an old technique called estampage, before air-drying. It is then fired in the kiln and finished with an application of Astier’s signature white glaze. Ivan and Benoît celebrate imperfections and the handmade process ensures that no two pieces are exactly alike.
