The Quartz colourway of this Pasta Plate from the Maguelone collection by Jars is exclusive to Borough Kitchen. Made by highly skilled artisans at their workshop in the South of France, the pieces in this collection feature a stunning glaze and are constructed from the finest quality ceramic. The ceramic is fired to over 1000 degrees celsius, creating a hardwearing vitrified surface which is dishwasher and microwave safe. The glazed surface paired with the unglazed underside blends modern chic styling with a homely, artisan finish. Perfect for both special occasions and every day.
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
