We work with ceramic in different ways depending on the creations: in ceramic biscuit,
porcelain, or black earth. But what are their advantages and their differences?
Our white ceramic pieces are made in Limoges.
The porous ceramic is biscuit-fired at high temperature so that the mineral material becomes neutral and can receive perfumes without distorting them.
We have some of our models specifically designed and designed by us made in Limoges. Other models come from standard Limoges raw parts, reworked in our workshop after firing.
Clay and minerals that make up porcelain is finer than that of ceramics.
The fineness of its components makes porcelain denser. It is whiter and more even in color than ceramic. Porcelain can be fired at higher temperatures. It is even more resistant than ceramic. As a result, porcelain can be worked so finely that it is possible to obtain a certain translucency without being too fragile.
We work porcelain only for unique pieces.
These pieces are fired at high temperature without reaching the maximum so that the object retains a certain porosity without being fragile.
We particularly like black clay (rather chocolate).
It works easily thanks to its beautiful plasticity.
Like porcelain, we fire it at a high temperature without reaching biscuit temperature (which would make ceramic non-porous).
The ceramic therefore remains porous but neutral and resistant.
