Jewel-Toned Planters and Pots from the South of France

July 19, 2012

Founded in 1837, this fifth-generation family pottery business is presided over by Jacques Ravel and his two daughters, Julie and Marion, in the town of Aubagne, near Marseille.

The pottery extracts its own clay from the firm's private quarries, which permits it to control the clay’s purity, color, and quality. Best known for its terracotta planters (they provide planters to luxury hotels and restaurants throughout France and around the world), Poterie Ravel also makes charming traditional Provencal crockery, available in the US only through Emilia Ceramics.
