I fell in love with these incredible plates made by Maison Fragile. They make French luxury fine porcelain which are all handmade with ❤️ in Limoges.
On the website you can find several series with chefs or other inspiring people.
Collaboration with Alain Passard
Below you can find the creations of the French three star Chef Alain Passard.
Twelve original collages of the Chef have been chosen and silkscreened on twelve Limoges porcelain plates, available in a limited edition. What brought them together? The love of gastronomy, of course, but also the taste for a job well done and a daily commitment to transforming raw materials into an exceptional product.
Alain Passard started his career at the « Duc d’Enghien » at the Casino of Enghien. He obtained one Michelin star, then a second. It was at this address that he perfected his carpaccio of langoustines with caviar. And another one of his recipes that he still serves to this day: A Chaud-froid of egg with chives. He then received two stars at the Carlton in Brussels, Belgium.
Passard opened his restaurant Arpège in 1968 and received his first star in 1987. The second in 1988. 19/20 in the Gault Millau Guide in 1990. A third star in 1996, only ten years after the opening of the restaurant.
Meat & Vegetables
«I like the visual and acoustic feel of cooking on the flame. This type of cooking requires numerous hours of attention to cook pieces that the chefs and I observe, turn over, feel and listen to…The meat is cooked through yet keeps its tenderness.
Vegetables have been the centrepieces at the Arpège since 2001. In 2002, the first vegetable garden was put together in Fillé sur Sarthe. In 2008, the second vegetable garden was set up in Buis-sur-Damville. Then shortly after, Alain Passard patented the “Bouquet de roses” apple tart, a tart that honours both the flower and the fruit.
The dishes that Alain Passard creates have a certain poetic mystery and an obvious enigma; they are always set to music, fugues, arias, sonatas, concertos, oratorios – They are symphonies around the products.
Alain Passard describes himself as « a sculptor of the flame »; He says he knows how to combine each product with the right flame: One that strokes, one that seizes…
The Chef says the first step with vegetables starts by looking at their colour “A mauve, a yellow, a marbly white, a celadon green, a pearly orange, these are colours that inspire me. I proceed by touches. The technical aspect comes after this.”
Collaboration with Jean- Michel Tixier | Serie SERGE GAINSBOURG
Maison Fragile and the Parisian illustrator artist Jean-Michel Tixier have joined together to create a collection that pays tribute to these men and women, key figures of history, who have made Paris as we know it. Below the plates of Serge Gainsbourg: French singer, songwriter, pianist, film composer, poet, painter, screenwriter, writer, actor and director.
Regarded as the most important figure in French pop whilst alive, he was renowned for often provocative and scandalous releases which caused uproar in France, dividing its public opinion as well as his diverse artistic output, which ranged from his early work in jazz, chanson, and yé-yé to later efforts in rock, funk, reggae, and electronica.
Gainsbourg's varied musical style and individuality make him difficult to categorize, although his legacy has been firmly established and he is often regarded as one of the world's most influential popular musicians.
His lyrical works incorporated wordplay, with humorous, bizarre, provocative, sexual, satirical or subversive overtones, including sophisticated rhymes, mondegreen, onomatopoeia, spoonerism, dysphemism, paraprosdokian and pun.
