Superb decor!

This blue and white large serving plate is really lovely with its Porquerolles decor that evokes the luminosity of the Mediterranean Sea.

Like a watercolor, these volutes are all in lightness and transparency punctuated with blue evolving towards turquoise. This very feminine and graceful pattern on elegant dinner plates will be perfect for a refined table on a beautiful white tablecloth.

Other combinations are possible with a tablecloth or placemats color in blue or green or bright yellow (don't hesitate to ask us for advice).

Handcrafted earthenware

This white earthenware plate is made in a traditional Vallauris pottery workshop entirely by hand.

It’s first shaped, then fired at nearly 1000 ° C to solidify white clay. After a pause for cooling, the decoration is painted freehand under enamel with a brush with colored oxides. It is soaked in a transparent glaze (like varnish), then the plate is baked a second time at 980 ° C to fix its final appearance. It is a long process which requires patience and humility for the potter, because of accidents when leaving the oven, or too humid weather which slows down drying.

But the beauty of craftsmanship comes at this price ...

Manual


1 - Before first use (culinary terracotta only)

Before using your culinary pottery for the first time, we recommend to soak your pottery and its cover overnight in cold water and then to air dry thoroughly.

Then rub it with a clove of garlic and let stand for at least 5 hours.

Before use, clean it by hand, preferably with liquid Marseille soap or a diluted commercial detergent. Once dry, your terracotta pottery is ready to use.


2 - To avoid thermal shocks

Glazed terracotta and earthenware, like any ceramic, are materials sensitive to thermal shocks and can be damaged irreparably. Here are some tips to avoid breakage.

  • 1st tip: Not empty!
    Never heat or reheat a pottery utensil when it is empty. We recommend placing preparations or food inside, or at least a glass of water, before placing your dishes in the oven or on a cooking source.
  • 2nd tip: Cold start
    Whatever the heat source, you should always start your cooking in a cold oven, or on a small fire with a heat diffuser. Covered pottery retains heat and loses very little energy. You can heat up slowly. The earth gently cooks the stewed preparations, giving them back their water. These remain soft and tasty. There is no point in raising the temperature sharply. If you adhere to this principle, you can simmer unattended for a long time. Finally, do not use your pottery for quick cooking (roasting meat, for example). It is not appropriate. Prefer utensils made of iron, cast iron, etc, instead.
  • 3rd tip: Do not put on a cold surface after cooking
    Provide a tea towel, a cork or wooden trivet, and avoid placing it directly on a work surface. The temperature difference between very hot terracotta and a cold surface could create a shock causing cracking. Likewise, never pass from the oven to the refrigerator or vice versa. It would be fatal for your ceramic. Also, do not leave your terracotta or earthenware dish next to a cooking point. The proximity of a very hot temperature can crack the ceramic.

3 - How to clean your pottery

Even if you are using the dishwasher, you must handle your dishes avoiding any shocks. For hand cleaning, avoid metal pads and abrasive sponges. It is better to use natural detergents, such as Marseille soap products. Always rinse thoroughly, especially for utensils that have an unglazed part. You must allow your ceramic to dry completely before storing it. Place the lid separately, or staggered to prevent airtight closing while your dishes are resting. This will help prevent mold, as the terracotta retains moisture.


Thanks to these recommendations, you will rediscover the true flavor of your recipe in this natural earth, and the pleasure of sharing it at dinner.
