When I was a child growing up in Northumberland, England, trips to France always included a visit to local potteries. One of my favorite pieces from those days is a simple, salt-glazed jug from Poterie Renault . Located in Argent sur Sauldre, near Orleans, France, the fifth-generation, family-run workshop continues to make rustic salt-glazed stoneware the old-fashioned way. Lately we've noticed pieces popping up all over the place (Is the pottery having a resurgence?). Here's a sampling. Above: The one-liter Parisian Pitcher , ideal for water, cider, and wine, is $55 from Alder & Co. Above: The seven-inch Breakfast Bowl is $18.95 from Flotsam & Fork. Above: The six-inch-tall stoneware Utensil Jar is $39.95 from Flotsam & Fork.
