Moustiers, faience of France
It’s one of the most beautiful crafts of Provence, born in the seventeenth century in the village of Moustiers Sainte Marie, in the heart of the Verdon area. Originally, the white faience is Italian and comes from the city of Faenza. It was imported to Moustiers by a clergyman who passed the technique of stanniferous earthenware to local potters. Since then, this beautiful village is famous for the white enamelled ceramic. It’s painted by hand with decorations imitating nature.
The older sets are often shades of blue, the famous "Moustiers" blue. Then come the colors and decorations of grotesque (eighteenth century), and the technique of "petit feu" which allows greater freedom in the handling of colors. Despite a decline at the end of the nineteenth century, the craft industry of the village has experienced a revival of interest in the last century and managed to remain until today. Moustiers is a high place of Provencal earthenware.
