French pottery: canister and milk jug

  • From Mont Saint Michel bay
  • Handmade and hand-painted
  • French country style

In Mont Saint Michel bay, there's a traditional workshop that has been creating French pottery since 1953. Everything is made by hand and painted by a talented French couple. Can you imagine how skilled they have to be to paint such pretty design?

The milk jug looks like the ones they used on farms in Normandy a long time ago. You can put kitchen utensils in it or even use it as a vase. The round ceramic container is useful too. Since it's made from earthenware, it's strong and doesn't let water through. That's why it's great for keeping things like cookies, sugar, or flour.

You can also just put this set of beautiful French pottery in your kitchen or living room to make it look nice. They're pretty all by themselves, don't you think? Also, they would be an excellent French housewarming gift or a gift for those celebrating their wedding anniversary. People who like the French country home style will adore this French pottery!

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.
