Astier de Villatte x John Derian Pencil Cups


This collection of pen pots are made by one of a few studios in central Paris still actively producing ceramic tableware using traditional 18th century methods. These designs are inspired from eclectic antiques collected by company owners Benoit Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli from flee markets and charity shops to give the pieces their signature wonky whimsical style - always featuring their signature milky white glaze over black terracotta. 

These stationery specific items are born out of a collaboration with New York designer and interiors extraordinaire John Derian who boats a vast collection of Victorian ephemera and a natural pairing for Astier de Villatte's historical wares. 

While photographed as an assortment, each item is sold separately. Pens in the photograph are not included.
