Hi thank you I had a look very similar in style and composition haven’t been able to find a lot of information but would definitely tie up with the region. Shame no marks as the glaze and colours are beautiful. I’m thinking maybe sandstone would you agree it very lightweight.

I assume you mean stoneware but that would not be lightweight

No I mean sandstone for instance Ciboure pottery feels lightweight. Just a thought I’m no expert.

if it's sandstone then you're in the wrong section as this one is for pottery

given the clay colour and weight I would guess your piece is white earthenware.
The frothy glaze was commonly used by potters in Vallauris

Thank you that would explain it . It’s very lightweight deceiving given the glaze you would think it would be heavier. Thanks for info I didn’t no about white earthenware👍🏻

Not wanting to complicate matters or be argumentative ... but I have typed 'grès' into google translate and the English translation comes up as 'sandstone'. But 'grès' is French for what the English call 'stoneware' ... all very surreal ... just like 'Fat Lava' which, apparently was a tricky translation that should have been 'Thick Lava' ... you just got to laugh!

I just read the word grès' in a French auctioneer's description of a Capron piece and could understand it meant stoneware so thanks touchdry Excellent
