The Founder : Mary Castel

Started in april 2017, Maison Fragile is a tribute to the Founder’s family history.

After many years working in communication, it’s only natural that Mary wanted to reconnect with her family history and turned herself to the porcelain and french craftmanship of Limoges, the excellence of the know-how.

Maison fragile, a publishing house of table art is finally a family story. Eager to make her compagny a human adventure, Mary gathered around her family, who, each in his speciality make Maison Fragile grow up.

Through her company, Mary put the fragility forward. Of the material first, and of humans. Maison Fragile touch de sensivity of each through the art, but also through the paradoxe of the porcelain wich is a fragil material, however it can supports many memories and precious times. It can break, but also survive human and be passed from generation and generation. Porcelain carries in it a story ; the excellence of craftmanship. This is the story that Maison Fragile wants to pay tribute to, while renewing the table art through the work of artists French Touch. Mary Castel’s goal in founding this House is to bring porcelain up to date and restore the taste of beautiful things to new generations.
