About Our Products


CERAMICS

All our ceramic products are cast in liquid porcelain and then fired at high temperatures making them dishwasher safe.

For Ditte Fischer's ceramics all items are individually wet sanded to give them the characteristically soft silky surface. Small variations in size, texture and surface feel are a result of work being done by hand rather than machine. 

For Lars Rank's ceramics all items are individually decorated by hand, which makes each item unique with regards to pattern and colour combinations.

 

GLASS OBJECTS

All our glass items are mouth-blown. Tiny variations and imperfections are traditional marks of handmade glass - you will only find perfection in machine produced glass items. Tiny bubbles, also called seeds, are pinpoint sized bubbles formed by gases when the raw ingredients for glass are melted and they do not affect the quality of the glass. Stretch marks, referred to as cords in the industry, are lines that are only visible when light hits the glass in certain directions. These lines are a difference in density that occurs during the melting process.

 

FABRICS

All Place de Bleu items are crafted with surplus fabrics from Europe's leading design textile manufacturer Kvadrat. This means that every collection is limited and some items may occasionally vary slightly in colour or texture. Any irregularities are to be considered part of the design and distinguishes the collection as handmade rather than factory produced. All fabrics are made from either wool or cotton blends, and dry cleaning is recommended. 

 

 WOOD OBJECTS

All BIRDs are made from natural oak wood. Since no two pieces of wood are exactly the same, each BIRD will be unique, with minor colour and grain pattern variations.
