The Story

When we visited the Porcelaines de la Fabrique works, we discovered a collection of fissured, chipped, cracked and damaged plates, all destined to be destroyed.

Adopting the Kintsugi technique, a Japanese practice dating back to the 15th century in which each accident creates an opportunity for renewal, followed naturally. Based on the experience and technique developed by Serge Nicole, we decided to create a set of one-off serving plates, on which each crack is filled with porcelain before being lacquered in gold, thus enhancing faulty firing and highlighting imperfection.

The Craftsman

Serge Nicole

“Hands establish a harmonious contact with clay, the contact between Man and Earth. They create harmony between men and their environment.”

Serge Nicole

Both a ceramist, member of the International Academy of Ceramics, and an architect, Serge Nicole is primarily an artist of the Earth. All his creations are a tribute to ceramics, its purity, its softness, and an invitation to dream.

Care instructions

As it is delicate and fragile, porcelain must be cleaned with care. Those sets are dishwasher safe. We advise against placing your porcelain dinner sets in the oven or the microwave since they may be decorated with precious metals that would not withstand such a treatment.
