Originally it was in the south of France, more precisely in the village of Biot, that during the fifteenth century the potters started to makes jarres in the form of an olive or a goutte (“drop”). These jarres, used for transporting foodstuffs by boat, were made using the “coil” technique. Today, our jarres replicate the ancient forms and are rope-turned by hand (“tournage à la corde”). Our jarres goutte are available in 4 variations of form and height: 60 cm, 70, 80 with ou without garland, and 2 models with a height of 100 cm.
Showed here with our Prestige patina. Exclusively ceramic, the Prestige patina, applied before firing, is very hardwearing. Several years of research have been needed to perfect it. By working the materail and the colours, we achieve a surface that evokes the quality of jarres handed down through the centuries.
