Emmanuelle MancheCeramicist, Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, France
Handcrafted in France. In a celebration of craftsmanship and manufactoring traditions, we tour each French region to bring you our curated selection of exceptional homeware, gifts and collectibles.
Ateliers d’Art de France unites over 6,000 French artisans, selected using three criteria: 1. All pieces handcrafted in an atelier in France. 2. Technical mastery of a specific savoir-faire. 3. Creativity and quality of the pieces.
Today, her atelier is nestled in an ancient troglodyte dwelling in the hillside overlooking the port town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, made famous by the Impressionists, at the confluence of the Seine and the Oise Rivers.
For Emmanuelle Manche, her ceramic objects and their function are linked by a formal pact.
