Description

‘For an exceptional table.’ For nearly 200 years, Faïencerie de Gien has continued to perfect the art of faience and French know-how. Its reputation was founded on making dinner services for Europe’s grandest families. Even today, the factory manages all aspects of the manufacturing process locally - from selecting the material (sand, clay or kaolin) to the finished product. A Gien plate requires 26 components and passes through the hands of 30 different ‘master faience makers’. Gien fine Earthenware is round and full of warmth. It has a smoother feel than traditional porcelain. Faience sings, it lives! The Indigo collection is delicate and feminine; its decoration is inspired by the Rouen 32 service, which has influenced many generations. Ceramic artist Brigitte de Bazelaire creates a bridge between the past and the present: the Rouen 32 pattern is de-constructed in a surprising way. There is a focus on scattered lilies, pomegranates and scrolls; the backgrounds are textured and the blues are deep. This stylish little teapot (holds 45 cl) will be ideal for a comforting rest at teatime. Today, more than ever, Faincerie de Gien is part of a programme of excellence. A member of the prestigious Comité Colbert, which groups together the major French luxury brands, it has been awarded the illustrious label ‘Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant’ (Living Heritage Company) by the French State.
