We’re thrilled to have teamed up with Alice Crane Ceramics to bring you these “limited-edition”
Savon de Marseille gift sets, each featuring a handmade stoneware ceramic soap dish.
Designed specifically to compliment our range of Pure French Soaps, each dish has been handcrafted and finished in a beautiful lead-free ceramic glaze which is vitrified in the final firing process making it strong and almost completely non-absorbent.
We’re really pleased to have commissioned these stunning pieces and we’re delighted with the results! Each and every hand-made piece is totally unique. Hand stamped on the reverse with the ‘Alice Crane’ logo they're available in a variety of colourful, contrasting and pastel glazes,
Teamed with an accessory and one of our
Savon de Marseille classic or traditional French soaps, we think they make a fabulous gift!

Limited Edition Gift Sets
"I have many childhood holiday memories of Provence, the lavender fields, of Grasse and Marseille, and I'm delighted to have made these soap dishes to complement the iconic Savon de Marseille.
Each dish takes a couple of weeks to be transformed from a lump of wet clay into the finished article through a process that can’t be rushed; the clay needs to be treated with respect and given time before it moves on to the next part of the making process.
The clay is rolled into a slab, cut, decorated and moulded, all of which takes 1 or 2 days dependent on how quickly it is drying. It is then left to dry out completely, usually taking about a week.
The first firing is next with the kiln reaching around 1000°C. Once cooled, glaze can be applied before a second firing at even higher temperatures.
This second firing is magical as the clay body and glazes strengthen and show their colours. I always open the kiln with nervous excitement as I can never be certain what I will be faced with; the same glaze can vary greatly even within the same firing depending on its position in the kiln!
Hoping you enjoy the results."
"Inspired by the leafy Warwickshire countryside, I create functional ceramic pieces that reflect the beauty of my surroundings".
