Astier de Villatte ...

Another one of my favorite moments in Paris was stumbling upon this beautiful ceramics shop on rue Saint-Honoré called Astier de Villatte. Each of the beautiful ceramic pieces is handmade in Paris with black terracotta and finished with a milky white glaze. I absolutely could not leave without making a small, but suitable purchase. I was so happy I had to capture it being wrapped. Plus, I couldn't get enough of the pretty white ceramics against that giant wall of wooden shelving.
The space itself was very pretty (and I'm sure very old) and cottage-like that, just as you thought it might end, it kept continuing on until we reached the very back room (pictured above). We really did feel like we were in someones house with the low ceilings and really great, old wood plank floors. This shop really was a treat and perfect Parisian experience.

I will consider the social, economic and political factors of Astier De Villatte Advancments in Astier De Villatte can be linked to many areas. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. Crossing many cultural barriers it still draws remarks such as 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' and 'i'd rather eat wasps' from the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, many of whom blame the influence of television.
