Astier de Villatte is committing for Tibetans.
Historically, Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte are very sensitive to the Tibetan cause. But it is by chance that the founders and artistic directors of Astier de Villatte house
could make a concrete commitment to the cause. One day, one of their friends, advised them to hire a Tibetan. This one was particularly good at working ceramics and, in turn, recommended other compatriots. Thus was created a small Tibetan community in the home workshop. Among them, some monks and a lot of political refugees who fled their country and the persecution of the Chinese regime. Only common thing, they all occupy positions of stamper, create ceramic pieces from beginning to end and then sign them with their initials. Their major strengths: patience and dexterity, two qualities particularly appreciated by Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte.
