A lovely dinette, part 3

I dream since a few months reading the French blog Vivre a la campagne ... I like her philosophy, her atmosphere from the south of France, the home made decorations...

So I fell in love with this little homemade dinette, with a small bottle of milk redecorated, small cooking ustensils like Mom found at Ikea ... all nicely packed in a crate of fruits from the farmers market, painted in pink.

A great gift for Christmas !

A lovely dinette, part two

Another lovely dinette created by the french artist Nathalie Lete.
She lives and works in paris. She mixes different techniques and mediums, illustrations, ceramics,textile and painting…
She is inspired by her travels, but also by the mixing of vintage toys and old engravings of flowers and animals. Her work is colourful, "naive and poetic, sometimes strange, to the point of tending towards art brut", as she defines it. Her world is nurtured by popular and folk art. She produces children’s and graphic’s books, knitted and stuffed toys, glass pictures, patterned dishes and this lovely dinette.
In a Cardboard suitcase, the dinette set contains 14 pieces of metal: a small plate, kettle, 4 small cups and saucers and 4 plates. All very nicely illustrated by Nathalie Lete.

She also creates exclusive pieces for stores such as Anthopologie like postcards,ceramic sculptures, silkscreen... in limited edition…

A lovely dinette

Madame M opened her pottery studio in France last year .. Since she multiplies creations, unique pieces, small bowls, ornaments, jewelry and more recently a small dinette. Her "influences are very diverse, the aesthetics of Japanese, traditional Scandinavian design through nature, its forms and fruit, and the new generation of ceramists French or foreigners ..." as she defines them.
She prefers "pure porcelain and white stoneware, simple shapes and irregular, containers and jewelry, working alone ... away from" perfection "of industrial and consumer system environment. "...

This beautiful dinette porcelain is like the rest of her collection ... Full of delicacy and poetry. It includes 6 small plates, large cup, bowl and spoon, a pot and its lid. The whole is shaped and created with care in very small series in France. Each piece is unique. The dinette is delivered packed in bubble wrap and tissue paper in a closed cardboard box with a ribbon of white cotton and a label.  
Refinement from A to Z for the pleasure of the eyes and little hands!

The moms will be able to enjoy their tea and little cakes in those beautiful sandstone bowls and mini cups  ... After all there is no age for a small dinette!
