porcelaine de Limoges - France
French art of living and nature at the heart of our know-how
Creating contemporary, timeless porcelain objects
Géraldine sets herself no limits and follows her desires to create objects with an authentic design. Natural and manufactured materials are inexhaustible sources of inspiration: plaster, resin, clay, papier-mâché…
Bringing objects to life, from designing a prototype to manufacturing a collection
After the design stage, a mould is made from the prototype. An initial object is then cast in the mould to ensure that the finish and details are in line with Géraldine’s vision.
After fine-tuning, she applies the markings and makes the “mother mould” or matrix, which will be used to replicate the production moulds identically.
Production moulds can only be used for a maximum of 50 pieces. They then have to be replaced. New moulds are then produced from the “mother mould”.
Moulds ensure consistency in the size of the pieces and the decorations, but handcrafting gives each creation the little imperfections that make it unique.
As the moulds have to dry between each pour, daily production remains limited, so there is no overproduction.
Shaping porcelain by hand to respect its sensitivity
Porcelain is a living material that needs to be worked and shaped. Each piece is made and finished by hand.
Porcelain is sensitive, it has a shape memory: the slightest shock is revealed when it is fired. It therefore takes great skill, acquired year after year, to reveal all the beauty of Limoges porcelain.
Yet there are always small imperfections, which guarantee the charm, authenticity and uniqueness of each creation. The result of patient craftsmanship, they are unique and endearing.
Firing porcelain to reveal its beauty, in biscuit or enamelled
The porcelain is fired a first time at 980°C: this is the degourdi firing. The result is biscuit porcelain, which remains porous. It is then finished with sanding, cleaning and glazing.
Then comes the second firing at a higher temperature (1280 to 1400°C). This “vitrifies” the porcelain. Whether matt or enamelled, the pieces become waterproof.
It is after this stage that porcelain reveals all its beauty. Its whiteness, translucency and sonority make it a timeless, warm material that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Adopting skills that respect the environment and people
Preserving the French economy, craftsmanship and know-how
We are proud to manufacture in France and happy to perpetuate the ancestral know-how linked to the work of the Limoges porcelain. More than just a label, ‘made in France’ is for us a commitment and a promise to our customers.
Manufacturing 100% French porcelain objects, from design to distribution
Moving towards eco-responsibility
Taking concrete action for sustainable development
We are committed daily to sustainable development, which we place at the heart of our production. In essence, porcelain is a 100% natural material (made from a mixture of minerals, durable and resistant). It recycles itself endlessly and at every stage, from the production (raw) to the finished product (fired). All our production is carried out in France, with respect for the health and safety of everyone. Our water and energy consumption are kept to a minimum.
And when you choose a REMINISCENCE HOME creation, we use perfectly eco-designed, recycled and recyclable packaging, based on natural materials such as cardboard, kraft, raphia or linen, and compostable natural glues.
Imagining objects to serve the French art of living
The French art de vivre often evokes the castles of the Loire, Versailles, the great Parisian avenues. Yet, we believe that the French way of life lies in the joys of everyday life: conviviality, gastronomy, culture, sharing… It is experienced every day, regardless of social class or capital city. That’s why REMINISCENCE HOME lighting, decoration accessories and tableware are timeless. Anchored in the present moment, they accompany you in your everyday life.
