These devine pieces of parissienne china are handmade in Paris 
of black terra cotta and finished with a milky white glaze. 
At Le Mill You’ll find wafer thin glazed platters, 
plates, bowls, pitchers and mugs ……

black terracotta clay using a special technique
which leaves deliberate imperfections on the surface.

 Each piece is unique !
