    A mazagran is a kind of drinkware usually used for coffee, which is named after the town of Mazagran in Algeria. A battle took place there in 1840 between French soldiers and Algerians and the legend says that during the night, the 123 besieged French soldiers drank coffee laced with alcoholic beverages.  A little gem, in which the clay sculpture work, the herringbone pattern, and the glazes give an urban and contemporary look.
    Each mazagran is unique. The images give a good idea of what you'll receive.

    Quebec Region: Handmade in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

    Material & Colour: A mix of white and brown/black stoneware and recycled earth (from previous production residues). Satin matt glaze. The gray-greige glaze varies greatly depending on the earth on which it is applied. So, the results of a piece and one batch to another are subtly different and that is what is sought by the artisan. All these shades will get married in the end.

    Dimensions : Diameter: 2.75"- 7 cm - Height: 5" - 12.5 cm. Holds 8.75 oz - 250 ml.

    Christian Roy practices the profession of potter since 1998. Working primarily for other potters, his production followed a dashed line, as the collection sold here are his first series. His work is mostly at the potter's wheel, sometimes porcelain, sometimes sandstone, the glazes highlighting the qualities and shortcomings of the different clays used, that have all their features and their interests, nothing is hidden. He likes to work simple, classical and balanced shapes, leaving ergonomics and natural beauty talk for themselves.

  • Normal maintenance. Dishwasher-safe. The satin matte glaze used is very resistant to scratches. Goes to the microwave, but the black earth gets hotter than the white because of the iron it contains.

  • Shipping: We ship to Quebec, Canada, the United States, Europe and in most countries around the world.
