Collection: French Pottery

The French Tangerine is your resource for aptware and French pottery! Access to awesome at its finest ~ straight from France. With a few exceptions, aptware is typically SPECIAL ORDER ONLY. Minimum order required. 

Aptware and other French pottery are ordered directly from one of several vendors in Apt, France, and there is typically a long waitlist with wait times ranging from 8 weeks to 8 months. I usually have a few pieces in the shop ~ listed separately ~ for purchase.. I have included lots of examples of aptware under the SPECIAL ORDER Tureen image below. Some photos are from the past and shown for reference. Most items can be ordered. The prices listed below are approximate and do not include shipping.

Contact me by email to inquire about stock, lead time, and pricing. I am happy to assist you with your order. 

*Aptware is a beautifully marbleized faience pottery, naturally inspired by the colored soils in Apt, a small town in France. The mixed clay ceramics of Apt are world renowned. I was overjoyed when I came across a skilled artisan residing in that region and discovered she is one of the last remaining masters of this art form. I am thrilled to provide access to this highly specialized and sought-after product, however, it is usually considered a very special order. Keep in mind the delivery times range anywhere from 8 weeks at certain times of the year, to 8 months at other times. The images displayed under *Aptware from France* are samples of aptware I have seen when visiting the workshops. Please inquire with any questions! Often, we feature pieces that I purchase while in Apt in the shops. However, most aptware sells very quickly, and it's hard to keep any of the traditional aptware in stock.
