The clay used for each pottery of Provence comes from Entraigue sur Sorgue, a small village near Avignon, the former city of the Popes.
A well-irrigated region, very fertile, at the confluence of the Rhone and the Durance rivers, where the Mistral wind blows…

The forms date from the 19th century ; they are obtained through three techniques : turning, pressing and casting.
They are called the "shards".
After slow and natural drying, a first firing in the kiln gives resistance to the clay, the "biscuit" is ready.
It's time for the "decoration", the flowers and the motifs
are delicately painted by freehand, inspired by the
colourful cottons and printed calicos of Provence.

Then begins the "enamelling", and the second firing of the pottery of Provence : the decorated "biscuits" are dipped one by one in enamel baths.
The art of the fire will bring out the colours…
Finally, taking them out of the kiln.
This is always a moment for emotion !

The SOULEO PROVENCE collection
