New French Basics: Cantine Tableware from Jars Ceramistes

May 14, 2015

Newly discovered, and currently at the top of our wish list: Cantine tableware, a collection of updated 1950s French dinnerware in a palette of seaside colors. Featuring a combination of glazed and unglazed surfaces, the pottery is made by Jars Ceramistes in the South of France, stoneware specialists since 1857.

Above: Jars specializes in “grand feu” firing, which vitrifies the clay and results in chip-resistant wares in exceptionally rich colors. North London shop Future and Found, where we first came across the line, offers the lipped Cantine Dessert Bowls, shown here, for £13 ($20.46) each and Cantine Plates for £15 ($23.61). They’re available in two colors: chalk and zinc.
