Aptware is a marbled pottery that was first made 300 years ago in Southern France. In contrast to other ceramics, Aptware is not painted, but rather the marbled effect is achieved through combining different colored clays. Aptware can be made with mixing a single-color clay with cream or by combining multiple colors. There are many different patterns of Aptware, from tightly marbled pieces often trimmed with a boarder to looser swirling patterns or a dynamic zigzag called flammé.
