This iconic Gien collection enchants with graceful birds, buds and branches rendered with a fine artist’s sense of motion, depth and composition. For its border motif, Isabelle de Borchgrave took inspiration from 18th century dinnerware recovered from a ship wreck off the coast of Spain. Her design has a subtle effect of being washed away, touched by the effects of water and salt.

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.
