Artist Marie-Hélène Mazure captures the magical spirit of the holidays with sprigs of holly coated with a dusting of frost, like pearl dust. Her paint brush creates elegant leaves with touches of pointillism in festive hues, exuding the excitement and joy of the season.

Two centuries of craftsmanship go into the making of a single piece of Gien faience. Handcrafted in a converted convent perched on the Loire River, every stage of creation takes place in Gien, France: from locally sourced raw materials to authentic handcrafted designs and final production. Gien faience is fired at traditionally lower temperatures, giving it a unique richness and depth of color. Stronger than pottery or ceramics, Gien products are designed for everyday tableware.

  • Dishwasher safe.
