Valentine, restaurants and ceramics
French-born, I am based in Madrid since 2022, after spending 10 years in London. I split my time between my ceramics studio and freelance food writing and consulting, running My Hungry Valentine
Restaurants and craft being my first loves, I have always been fascinated by what goes into them in addition to the menu and wine list—service, playlist, lighting, decor, tableware… This is how I came to clay, by flipping over the plates to see who made them! I started experimenting with clay in 2015, and the project of launching my own ceramics studio naturally formed in 2020.
My Hungry Valentine Ceramics Studio focuses on handmade tableware for contemporary restaurants and home, all handmade by me. Each piece comes with its own story, its own tiny variations. Like you, like me, like the recipes that will come to dress them up.
I hope they will brighten up your daily table, sublimate your pasta fix, wake up your morning toast or charm your olives, your tapas and other aperitivo essentials.
