Xavier Maffre

Craftsman

A ceramist and a potter, Xavier Maffre sometimes wounds his clay around a rope, often models it onto a tower and always fires it in the crimson opening of his Dragon kiln (Anagama). He enjoys the rough softness of red earth, functional and beautiful objects, the hardness fire endows to the softness of clay.

A two-hour drive from the Domaine des Etangs brought us to Sam Kasten’s studio. Alone and single-handed among his looms, he weaves relentlessly, when the hour suits him. For the Domaine, he has created huge mohair or cashmere plaids, ideal for a living room or to snuggle into dreams and softness on winter evenings.
