Firstly, the artisans. Almost all oscillate between artist and craftsman, with all the non-linear creative highs and lows, the triumphs, failures, and the blurred motivation that escapes notions of practical manufacturing or simplistic methodology. At La Tuile à Loup, we believe in valuing French craftsmanship and preserving artisanal traditions. Every piece you will find in our store is the result of the talent and creativity of local artisans. In this way, we support the local economy and contribute to preserving the cultural heritage of our country.
Finally, the pieces that we carefully select for La Tuile à Loup, whether they be sophisticated or rustic in style, represent both the artist and the art. We cannot simply place an order and accept the delivery of the next batch from the kiln, as our vision is interactive. We visit the artisans' workshops, exchange "indications" to meet our own desires as well as the dreams and wishes of our customers. The artisans need total freedom of expression for their work, which has taught us to adapt. We also understand that what they produce is often limited in quantity, making the stocking of our inventory a venture that requires patience and perseverance.
Thus, La Tuile à Loup has become a must-see showcase in Paris for French ceramics and artisanal crafts. We are proud to collaborate with established artisans as well as promising young talents to offer a selection of exceptional objects, everyday items, and tableware that express an alternative vision of home arts.
