Antoine Campana has been a potter in Corbara for over 37 years. His pottery workshop, located a few minutes from Île Rousse, has nurtured numerous talents. Here, stoneware is shaped to produce dishware, plates, ashtrays, vinegar jugs, and many other handmade pottery items, available for online purchase.

Corsican Craft Pottery since 1986

ceramic deep plates terracotta pottery

For 37 years, pottery has become the art of living for Antoine Campana, following an encounter with the potter from Pigna in Aregno during the 1980s.

Recognized as an artisan and having practiced with the same passion for so many years, Antoine is also a member of the association Strada di l'Artigiani, "the craftsmen's route" of Balagne, aimed at promoting the craftsmanship and know-how of the Balagne region.

All creations from the Corbara workshop are made from wheel-thrown stoneware, seeking simple and pure shapes, with a choice of solid or composite colors.

The Corbara workshop is located 4 km from the city center of Île-Rousse, not far from Calvi. Credit cards are accepted.

Antoine Campana works for a loyal and longstanding clientele, including foreigners (Germans, Italians). The artisan potter uses the wheel and a gas kiln, the flame of which brings particular colors and hues. The firing process extends over 4 to 5 hours at temperatures reaching 1280°. Throughout the year, he manufactures directly on-site in his workshop, where you can find him during opening hours.

Association - Strada di l'Artigiani

They are glassmakers, potters, cutlers, jewelers, luthiers, olive growers, beekeepers, or winemakers, in Calenzana, Cateri, Algajola, Olmi Capella, Feliceto, Calvi, Occhiatana, Lumio, Corbara, Santa Reparata, and Pigna, and they open their workshops and recount their day: Damascus steel, bronze foundry, Raku ceramics, essential oils, mosaic, bubble blown glass, faience or stoneware pottery, cow or lamb leather, gold or silver jewelry...

And you listen, glass in hand, cake in mouth, to the sound of the pirula and the cetera. And you no longer know if it's the object you're really looking for, or the encounter with the person who made it.
