Floral dinnerware set

Opt for the cheerfulness of these pretty, floral dessert plates that will put a joyful ray of sunshine on your table.

The colors are delicious and rustic, highlighted by the enamel. The center is marked by a medallion underlined in the manner of lace. Three bouquets are distributed over the crown and a few white dots like seeds give relief to the surface of the plate.

The Cavaillon model is a fairly typical decoration of Provencal pottery, especially those of Vallauris, but this one is particularly successful. The collection also includes all the breakfast crockery, cups, mugs and teapot, dinnner plates, soup or pasta plates, and essential table accessories such as salad bowls, serving dishes or oven dishes. All items are oven and dishwasher safe.

You may want to change your used dishes. Also think about gifts (Mother's Day, a wedding ...) because a signed artisanal pottery will always be appreciated as a unique piece.

Beautiful craftsmanship

Vallauris, where this earthenware is made, has been one of the great Provencal potters' towns since the 16th century.

In the 1960s, the city even became an international art center thanks to emblematic figures such as Pablo Picasso and Jean Marais.

Today, unfortunately, only a handful of real workshops remain, and resist the curse of "made in China", among which Fabio, our flagship craftsman. Since 1980, he has been working to defend this centuries-old tradition.

So to speak, this plate is a survivor of this beautiful craftsmanship that we try to support despite globalization and its failings.

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.
