In a retrospective tribute to her childhood, Brigitte de Bazelaire has given an ultramodern new lease on life to the Gien « Rouen 32 » pattern.
This was a dinner service that left a lasting impression on generations who can remember the time when beautiful tableware made every meal feel like a feast.
Brigitte de Bazelaire here rises to the challenge - bridging the gap between past and present – in this assignment for the prestigious Faïencerie de Gien
White on blue … she has remodelled the Rouen 32 motif to give it a stunning new look : lillies, pomegranate flowers and curlicues, all larger than life, are scattered on a backdrop of shifting deep blues.
Together they form a delightfully fresh mix ‘n’ match pastiche.
Blue on white … what were formerly neat arrangements of lillies and pomegranate petals are now dispersed on spacious white forms, generous and free, in subtle tones of indigo blue, true to Gien tradition.
