Garden Club of Monaco - Ceramiques


Meet Stephane Montalto. Stephane is a Ceramiste Potier who has his atelier in Roquebrune Cap Martin. He makes these beautiful pots and much else besides. This is his signature colour. I remember buying several smaller pieces when I first came to the region - his smaller pieces are in a slightly paler turquoise. I love his pottery.

This pot is a traditional Provençal pot and is an art that Stephane has revived. Stephane's work is installed in many parts of Monaco, including the Japanese Garden, St. Martin's Garden on Le Rocher and in many of the beautiful Belle Epoque villas on Cap Martin. His work has been shown in many different exhibitions and he's also won many awards. Such a dedicated and charming man.

The perfect color for the region and my favorite! Lovely.
Oh and, may I add that Stéphane could easily moonlight as Richard Branson's sosie. You know, like that Italian who poses as George Clooney? I hear he is making good money with this gig. ;)

what a delightful post--it's like you read our minds to know what we wanted to know. we had no idea what the rates were or that it would be that crowded. looking forwarded to seeing more of the daily activities perspective.

Stephane is a clever fellow. I'd like to see some of his other work. My little sister is studying ceramics at the moment.
