Astier de Villatte

Manufacturer Astier de Villatte

Astier de Villatte has been making handmade ceramics in Paris since 1996, following the tradition of the great 18th century Parisian ceramic studios.

The most famous Parisian manufacturer, Pont-aux-Choux, produced thousands of ceramic pieces between 1743 and 1788, right in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Other ceramic studios subsequently prospered in the Paris region, most notably the Creil and Montereau studios in the 19th century and the pottery makers of Choisy-le-Roi whose workshop closed in 1938.

As a successor to these famous manufacturers, Astier de Villatte is now the one and only major studio to keep the tradition of artisanal ceramic production in Paris alive
