Designed by Sigolène Prébois and Catherine Lévy in 1995, the Famished and Thirsty Collection has grown over the years. Made in porcelain, these pieces combine solidity and fineness. The plates and dishes are cast in a traditional method between two plaster molds. Each time they are cast, certain differences may appear, which are the expression of the unique character of each one of these hand-cast items. Their “imperfections” are the sign of their originality and are not considered as defects.
The porcelain has a special, slightly blue tint. It can be put in dishwashers and microwave ovens. Porcelain is extremely impact resistant, but if a chip occurs, you can soften it with sandpaper (see the video on useful hints www.tse-tse.com).
The gold and platinum enameled pieces are made with real gold and platinum, and are hand-painted. They are precious and fragile: they shine brightly but are not safe in microwave ovens and aggressively stirring sugar crystals will wear off the off the gold coating inside the cups. Dishwashing machines and the abrasive side of sponges are not advised.
