Amélie Pichard is at it again, unveiling a new collaboration around tableware. The creator of the crocodile-stamped vegan bags joins forces this time with the ceramicist house Villa Arev, founded in 2017 by Gabrielle Thomassian, and presents three daring and humorous candleholders. An oyster and its lemon, a wheel of Gruyère cheese and a ramekin of cashew nuts welcome the candles in this very franchouillarde edition praising our bistros – by the way, the name given to this series is Bistrots-Bougeoirs – complementing the egg-mayonnaise and leek-vinaigrette atmosphere specific to our gastronomy. Franchouillarde to the end because these delicious decorative objects were designed in the Villa Arev workshop located in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. An alliance between two creators sharing the same love of craftsmanship, as Amélie Pichard confides: “As a craftsperson, to bring a product to life from A to Z with just clay and a lot of patience is a great opportunity.” Let’s give them the chance to light up our most beautiful tables.
