Valérie Casado

Valérie Casado was eight when she discovered her passion for clay. She spent years perfecting her craft, eventually settling down and starting her business in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France.

Using a rolling pin, she inlays vintage lace and sometimes local herbs and flowers onto black clay, then drapes the imprinted clay around a bowl or cup. To create an organic edge, she tears at the excess clay.

After letting the clay dry then firing it once, she adds a white glaze atop the piece, then fires it again. Each piece is different and entirely unique.
