Ceramic canister blue & green – French pottery

  • From Mont Saint Michel
  • Handmade and hand painted
  • Traditional French kitchen decor

In the Mont Saint Michel bay, a couple of passionate artisans create French pottery, 100% handmade and hand painted since 1953. They carefully shape and paint canisters, jars, jugs, wall decor… 

This ceramic canister is made with earthenware, which is a very resistant material. Its original floral design is hand painted in blue and green. You can use it as a decor in your kitchen but also to storage flour, sugar, or biscuits. Or why not removing the lid and using the canister as a lovely vase? With fresh flowers, like mimosa, it will be a perfect spring decor in your interior. 

Canisters are a must-have in French country interiors. French love collecting and displaying several potteries on open shelves or on a dresser. At French Address, we love pottery, discover our collection of French pottery with pieces from all over France. We have for example 2 shapes of canisters and a milk jug from the Mont Saint Michel workshop.

Brand story

Founded in 1953, the Faïencerie de la Baie is an essential artisan workshop in the bay of Mont Saint Michel. Martine and Jean Claude Gourlaouen took over it in 1980 and have maintained excellent know-how for more than 40 years. Jean-Claude is an art technician from the Ecole de Sèvres, a university located within the prestigious Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sèvres, in operation since the 18th century.

La Faïencerie de la Baie manufactures earthenware by turning, casting and grading. The decorations are entirely handmade, inspired by Normandy. The workshop carries out all the stages of manufacture: mixing of components (chalk, flint, clay, etc.), turning, casting, grading, drying, firing the biscuit, decoration, enameling and final firing. Throughout the manufacturing process, dexterity and aesthetic sense are essential.

Filled with knowledge and experience that have only evolved, Martine and Jean Claude have passed on their know-how to dozens of apprentices and trainees. There was a time when more than fifteen employees worked at the earthenware workshop.
