The table collection "Barr Avel" from the breton "gust") is a creation of the designer Annie Quentel for Henriot-Quimper. Annie Quentel studied at the Art High School of Nantes and worked during 17 years as a sculptor and designer. In 2014, she opens her own workshop for design and decoration. She works on ceramics items, combinating different techniques to create pieces between sculpture and design. For Henriot-Quimper, she creates this new table collection, including 6 different plates.
Our Quimper Faience collection is imported directly from the Henriot Quimper in Quimper, France. Founded in 1685, Henriot Quimper is know the world over for its know-how of the “Quimper Paint Touch” and the tradition of producing and hand-painting every piece of faience in-house. Henriot Quimper continues the tradition producing the traditional patterns featuring the Breton figures as well as many new more modern designs. The superbly talented resident artists at Henriot still hand-craft every piece of Quimper Pottery. Each piece of Quimper faience is completely handmade and painstakingly hand-painted. Each piece of Quimper is unique. One artist hand paints each piece from start to finish then signs the piece and marks it “Henriot” to ensure its authenticity.
Colors may vary. Colors in photograph are close but may not represent true colors. All Quimper faience pieces are fully hand painted. Each piece is therefore unique.
