That’s how it happened…
I started by photographing my collection of dishes on Instagram, during a break in the country… three hundred followers later, the idea came to create Tata Faïence, for the pleasure of the eyes and the china.
Who is Tata Faïence?
Badonviller, Moulin des Loups, Sarreguemines, Boulenger… Since I was a child, I have been a lover of grandmother’s tableware, of the old-fashioned poetry of ironware and earthenware, of their poetic, romantic or naive motifs. They evoke a certain quietness and sweetness of life, but also the pleasure of receiving guests in a more personal and charming way. I have decided to share with you my finds and collections, amassed over the past 25 years, which I store between Paris and the generous countryside of southwest France. I also work with hotels and restaurants, which I supply with vintage tableware, according to their requirements: 19th century ironware but also Vallauris or modernist ceramics. Quote on request.
What is iron soil?
It is a fine white earthenware obtained by adding Kaolin (a white refractory clay that cooks at high temperature) in the paste up to 25%. The names “half porcelain” and “opaque porcelain” refer to the same product.
