This designer’s preferred raw material is “white gold”, otherwise known as Limoges porcelain. Delicate and transparent, it adds a poetic dimension to Alix D. Reynis’ creations. Pure enchantment.
Porcelain – a timeless material
A sculptor and interior architect, Alix has always had a particular taste for pretty things. When she created her own brand in 2011, she naturally drew inspiration from the everyday and from French know-how. This led to objects that are a blend of poetry, heritage and modernity, whether dinnerware, candles or lighting on which she places inspiration from other places with patterns such as laurels and arabesques. She gives us a style that is both timeless and laden with history, pieces that are pure and delicate and that allow us to renew with the long tradition of porcelain which has been put to good use in France since the 18th century.
Contemporary creations, traditional processes
The designer begins by creating a model in plaster or clay that allows her to produce an identical mould so that the craftspeople at the porcelain factory in Limoges can take over. They pour the porcelain barbotine, leave it to dry for 24 hours then cook it for the first time at 980°C before enamelling the pieces and cooking them for a second time at 1400°C. This is genuine craftsmanship that brings out all of the delicate nature and the singularity of the work of Alix D.Reynis. Parisian sales outlets on www.alixdreynis.com
