This little creamer caused quite a stir when it arrived at Borough Kitchen. Just the right size for a portion of chocolate sauce, custard or fruit coulis, and finished with a subtle crackle glaze. The creamer is from Jars' Maguelone collection and made by hand in the south of France. This charming piece is handmade from the highest quality ceramics, before being glazed and fired at over 1000°C. The rustic aesthetic is given a contemporary twist, making a real statement on the table.
This piece can be pre-heated in a low oven (max 150°C) from room temperature. It should not be used for cooking. Over 200°C and in particular when using oil, the crackled-effect glaze can ‘open’ and may let colours of cooked foods in, therefore making it impossible to remove.
Why we love it
- Handmade in France
- Dishwasher and microwave safe
- Beautiful and practical
About The Brand
Jars’ history spans more than 150 years. Founded by a potter named Pierre Jars, deeply guarded craft secrets have been passed down through generations to make out-of-the-ordinary ceramics and glazes in their factory in Anneyron, France. This know-how has earned Jars prestigious EPV (French Companies of Living Heritage) status.
Since nature is a constant source of inspiration for Jars, they take care to implement eco-friendly practices like:
- Firing their products only once at high heat, significantly reducing energy use
- Recycling water and china clay mixes, ensuring no pollutants extend to the factory’s surrounding areas
- Recycling exhaust heat from the kilns for use in the biscuit (clay) dryers
We love the soft, organic shapes of their Maguelone range, as well as the artfully ‘cracked’ glazes of their Tourron range.Shop Jars
