After slow and natural drying, the first firing in the kiln gives resistance to the clay, the "biscuit" is ready. It's time for the "decoration", the flowers and the motifs are delicately painted by freehand, inspired by the colourful cottons and printed calicos of Provence.
Then begins the "enamelling", and the second firing of the pottery of Provence: the decorated "biscuits" are dipped one by one in enamel baths. The art of the fire will bring out the colours… Finally, taking them out of the kiln. This is always a moment for emotion!
