Porquerolles collection

Very romantic, these soup and salad plates with azure blue watercolor-like decor! This collection was named Porquerolles, a luminous island in the Mediterranean Sea.

Whatever the use, fall for these unique salad plates handmade in Provence. The decorator's touch is airy, feminine, and gives a romantic air and an impression of lightness. The simple shape of the plate allows for a decoration in a crown that mimics the rim. So beautiful !

You may also find dinner plates, dessert plates or large presentation plates. Not to mention table accessories such as salad bowls, dishes, cups and tea pot. A complete tableware set is possible if you like the Porquerolles collection.

Purely artisanal

This tableware is entirely handcrafted in the pottery tradition of Provence. A traditional workshop in Vallauris uses the technique of earthenware, a mixture of white clay and kaolin, to shape the pottery.

After a drying step which is very weather-sensitive, the ceramics are fired in a large oven at 980 ° C. Once cooled, each piece receives a decoration (here, with a brush under enamel with colored oxides). For this type of decor, a transparent glaze is applied before a second firing again at 980°C. The moment of getting out of the oven is always a bit stressful for the craftsman, because sometimes some ceramics crack, and he has to start over.

These are the vagaries of real craftsmanship, which is ‘slow made’, a work of patience.

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.
