We are thrilled to introduce our exquisite collection of French hand crafted pottery. You will find these pieces truly inspiring - bringing a flavour of the South of France to your home.
Gigondas - a charming village in Provence is nestled into the the foot of the spectacular Dentelles de Montmirail.
A jewel in the crown of the village is an artisan pottery studio. Sylvie and Michel Carles create the most exquisite handmade pottery, inspired by the surrounding Provincial countryside.
Leaves collected locally form the moulds for stunning plates and dishes. They are so life-like and appear to have floated down from the tree.
A rectangular platter with a stunning floral pattern is suitable for cheese, fruit, or even a beautiful plate for your nightstand - perfect for a water glass, reading glasses and jewelry.
Practical and beautiful pieces are decorated with figs and leaves, moulded from local fruit. This utensil container is a wonderful example of their work.
An ingenious design, this salad bowl has a spout and garlic grater on the inside. In France, salad dressing is prepared in the salad bowl, (always with garlic) then the salad leaves rest on top. When it is ready to be served, the salad is stirred which is traditionally after the main dish, but before cheese.

If you are visiting Provence, Gigondas is a must see.
