A handmade production

This is a round baking dish that will be made for you by one of the last potters of Vallauris. It can be made in two sizes: diameter 8 or 10 inches. From the clay, the craftsman models the pottery to give it its final shape, and sgraffite the base eventually. It’s then baked for the first time after drying. It’s then varnished in dark sienna color as yesteryear, then finish is fixed by a second baking. It’s a long process, subject to variations in ambient humidity that man doesn’t control, because it depends on the weather. The art of pottery is often « the school of patience », like most craft jobs.

Instructions for use


Before the first use of your culinary pottery, it is recommended to soak it in water all night and let it dry before use.
Then, rub the surface with garlic and let rest for at least 5 hours. After this, you may wash the pottery as usual, and cook in it.
No culinary piece of earthenware can be directly put on fire or flames or any cooktop without being exposed to crackle and even destruction.
It is strongly recommended to put a simmer mat under your pottery which will allow a better heat distribution and a longer life for your pot.
Furthermore, do not put an empty pot on a cooking fire. Also, never cool the pottery suddenly after taking out of fire, never take a dish out of the freezer and put in the oven straight away. It could produce a dramatic thermal shock and considerably alter your pottery.
Thanks to these advises, you will discover again the basic taste of your recipes in this natural earthenware, and enjoy the pleasure of good cuisine.
