The artistry of master ceramists is evident in every detail of this French stoneware collection-a fresh, modern interpretation of classic 1950s silhouettes. Famous for coaxing rustic warmth from every piece they make, artisans at Jars Ceramistes in southern France shape and glaze each piece using an intricate 17-step process to create a unique "crackled" appearance and creamy richness of color. Crafted of extremely durable and chip-resistant stoneware. Labor-intensive multistep glazing process yields vibrant colors and unique crackled look. Microwavable and dishwasher safe. Made in France at the award-winning Jars pottery, founded in 1857. Set of 16 includes four each of dinner plates, salad plates, bowls and mugs.
