courrier was founded late 2017, and is the brain baby of French Interior Designer Veronique Terreaux.
Veronique began her career more than 20 years ago, first in Paris, then in Melbourne, and finally settling in Sydney. But courrier, it’s also and especially a vibe… The vibe of Friends and family gatherings at the holiday house, in Dordogne, Provence, or Corsica… When the evenings were long, when the kids outnumbered the adults and stayed up way too late, when conversations were cheerful and lively… dinners were made up of simple meals, wine never stopped flowing, everything was ‘slightly’ out of control… And the plates were always beautifully mismatched!!
Our STONEWARE is hand made by our partners in a small factory in Jingdezhen, China. Jingdezhen has been the Porcelain capital of China for more than 1000 years. Nowadays, Jingdezhen is offering ancestral pottery techniques, exceptional quality of clay and rather small “artisan like” factories. It’s also an international ceramic hub, constantly hosting artist residencies and workshops. Jingdezhen comprises hundreds of small independent craftsmen and artists, decorators, glaze shops, public kilns, brush makers etc… It’s basically the mecca of ceramic, the dream for any potter!
