Astier de Villatte

    It is impossible not to stop into this shop when you pass by on the fancy rue Saint Honoré. The ceramic votives filled with fragrant vegetable wax candles long to be sniffed, and the bohemian styled shelves filled with neatly stacked, handcrafted teacups are all ready to be filled with something special. Handcrafted dishware, stationary made by an ancient press, silverware created in the shop where Napoleon’s silversmith once worked and even scented erasers are a mere sampling of the unique treasures at Astier de Villatte in Paris. Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier, founders of this lifestyle bazaar, began their careers as fine art students. After meeting in 1990, they began collaborating while using the ceramic medium and were encouraged to show one of their plates in 1996 at one of Europe’s largest design exhibits, Maison et Objets. Their products on display were traditionally handmade creations and they remain that way today. A team of twenty trained ceramicists make the renowned pottery in the same way that Beloit’s father once taught him and his siblings. The signature mark is the milky white glaze given to the finished black terracotta pieces. No two are alike but they all embody the classic chic style associated with Astier de Villatte.Show lessRead more
