Stoneware... trendy again
Recently, artisanal ceramics have made a big comeback in our interiors. Which home decoration magazine doesn't present any in its pages? This trend highlights the necessity to go back to a smarter way of consuming, privileging quality rather than quantity. The need to put back the human self at the heart of creative acts.
Unique objects rather than uniform ones. An authentic slowlife spirit that reminds us that craftsmanship can also be fashionable.
Stoneware... with a long heritage
As you can imagine, handmade stoneware objects are nothing new! Working with clay is the first " art of fire " to appear in history. Metallurgy and glasswork were only used much later. It was first fired in China.
Today, it is suitable for anyone who wants to make their interior more authentic. Stoneware is often chosen by potters for its solidity and watertightness. Composed of clay with a high silica content, its second firing at over 1200°C allows the earth to vitrify, making it particularly resistant. Its watertightness allows it to be used for containers such as cups, teapots, vases and flower pot holders.
Stoneware... to elicit feelings
There are several types of ceramics: stoneware, porcelain, faience. Their specific characteristics are due to their components and their firing temperature.
- Porcelain is the finest ceramic, it is more delicate, sometimes translucent and often considered to be more precious.
- Faïence seduces those who are looking for a porous and opaque object. It is also more fragile.
- Stoneware has more character. It allows to play more easily with textures, colors and shapes. More authentic, it enables the creation of more tactile pieces which you will enjoy holding with your hands.
