Brand story

Karen Petit is a designer ceramist, she creates her own aesthetics: clean and soft shapes enhanced by subtle details. She gets inspiration in the past and capitalizes on it to design a new line. In 8 years, she designed more than 10 lines, inspired for example by the Art Deco period or Provence traditional ceramic. The common trait? A kind of romanticism and poesy emerge from her refined creations.

All her pieces are handmade in her workshop in Saint Etienne. She works with the potter’s wheel to shape the pieces. Then up to three 9-hours firing sessions are necessary: one for the porcelain, another one when the glaze is added and one for the gold covering. The production requires time (aka patience!): after each firing, it is required to leave the pieces in the oven during 2 days so their temperature decreases. 2 weeks pass from the beginning mixing the liquid porcelain to the final cleaning #slowmade. Time, precision and dedication, French fine ceramic is demanding.

Atelier d’art de France, the French professional fine craft federation, distinguished Karen as a member, recognizing her technical expertise, her creativity and the quality of her work.
