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).
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 ...
