These ceramic lunch plates exude generosity and gluttony.
The non-existent border of the plate is imitated by a floral wreath. It’s nicely decorated with orange flowers and their green leaves on a Provencal yellow background. A central medallion in khaki green is outlined with a white border in the manner of lace.
The gradations of colors, the small typically Provencal 3 dots and the shine of the enamel make this object a delight for the eyes.
This floral dinner set comes straight from a potter's workshop in Vallauris, a world famous pottery town in Southern France.
It went through all stages of production, from shaping to the last firing. Its earthenware base is a mixture of white clay and kaolin, which is baked at 980 ° C after drying to fix its solid form. It is then decorated with a brush under enamel first, and receives a transparent slip.
Some details are added ‘a la poire’ before a second firing in the oven at nearly 1000 ° C for its final appearance. This long process is manual from start to finish, and this is why each piece is unique: no ceramic is perfectly identical.
This plate is a pure product of craftsmanship, pretty and useful at the same time.
