"Pichet" or Jug 75cl

Renault Pottery - "Pichet" or Jug 75cl

In 1847 near Orleans France, Louis Stanislas Renault opened a pottery at Argent-sur-Sauldre. The region possesses two essentials ingredients for the making of potteries, Clay is plenty available in his region, and so is wood for the firing of its stoneware, two essentials ingredients needed for his new endeavor. Since its inception no less than five generations have succeeded Louis-Stanislas perpetrating his artisanal creations, maintaining and renewing the line with new products. These wonderful kitchen utensils have always been typically associated with French regional cuisine but now this stoneware is very still in use with modern professionals for the intrinsic qualities these dishes possess. For once, they retain heat or cold for much longer period than does plastic or glass. Placed in refrigerator they will retain the coolness of any beverage you will use them for longer time without the need to add ice. These jugs are glazed inside and on the rim but left bare and matte on the outside. They are quite decorative and can be used in a lot of ways.

Salt glaze pottery is stoneware with a glaze of glossy, translucent formed by throwing sea salt into the kiln during the higher temperature part of the firing process. Sodium from the salt reacts with silica in the clay body to form a glossy and glass-like coating of sodium silicate.

These jugs or "Pichets" are traditionally seen on tables of French "Auberges" to serve wine or water.
