Beautiful plate- a piece of art. I have it out on the counter to display always!
Little girls often dream of becoming prima ballerinas, modern-day Shirley Temples or, yes, princesses. Not so Edith Bourgault, designer of the celebrated pottery line Art & Manufacture. Edith wanted to grow up and become Indiana Jones. “I’ve always been attracted to adventure, freedom, treasure hunts and old stories,” says Edith. “I think the rustic look that comes into play in my work comes from my passion for history.”
Edith’s pottery, rendered in her signature bright cobalt blue, calls to mind the dishes that her Quebecois ancestors used a hundred years ago. “I try to make comforting and familiar objects that make you want to eat — with appetite — the recipes of our grandmothers."
Edith takes inspiration from her own everyday life. When she’s not designing, she spends time cooking for her family and taking care of her two sons. “Because I cook a lot I always need an object or specific shape for a cooking dish. I love it best when the table is filled with bowls and various plates and guests can choose what they want.”
