or architect?


Let us create your custom product in enamelled lava.

Our workshop can help you make the most challenging ideas a reality, no matter where you are in the world.

At the dawn of a new discovery. This unrivalled material lends itself to any use. But more than that, it allows you to find the exact shade you have in mind. And because it can withstand anything, you can use it anywhere. Even above a fire or at the bottom of a swimming pool.

Design without limits

There’s washbasins, counters and façades of course. But that’s just the start of it, because lava works for all kinds of projects.

Your creations will be produced in our Castelsarrasin workshops, in southwestern France. A place renowned for its technical prowess, where cutting-edge technology meets craftsmanship of the rarest quality.

Your custom colourway

Order exactly the colour you want. Our signature enamelling of Pyrolave lava, using natural enamels, means we can make any colour, controlling the shade perfectly. Choose from our existing ranges, or send us a sample of the shade you want us to match.
For 35 years, our master enamellers have risen to such challenges: they combine pigments and firing methods to get the finish just right. Do you have a colour in mind, to take this exceptional material to the next level?


Square edge, quarter round, half round, bird’s beak, inverted chamfer etc. We’ll consider anything, even totally original custom edge profiles.

During firing, the enamel turns to liquid and can run lightly over the edge, creating variations in shade, varying in degree according to the chosen colourway, along with the darker line which is characteristic of enamelled lava creations. A highly sought after signature!


Single-piece or assembled

With the latest technical developments and Pryolave’s traditional expertise, a work surface or counter no longer has to be flat, but can undulate, become a statement piece, or slot discreetly into its surroundings. The lava’s thickness ranges from 10 mm to over 200 mm, depending on the project and dimensions. Pyrolave enamelled lava is one of the few materials to offer such possibilities.

As with every handmade product, it’s unique. Variations are part and parcel of the product: grain effects, non-uniformities, slight dots or marks… these are all part of the results that give each piece its own character. These little details could be mistaken for defects when the item arrives, but they’re quite the opposite.  They’re actually proof of the authentic craftsmanship behind it, at every stage of its creation: natural stone, high-temperature firing, how the enamel responds, and the work done by hand.

By your side every step of the way

Exploratory meetings, prototyping, drawings etc.: we support architects and designers through their projects from start to finish. With 35 years of experience and an R&D department at your disposal, you can be sure we’ll be there to familiarise you with this rare product and help you integrate it into your project.

How long will it take?

Lead times for handmade products are longer than for mass production. Our customers can expect to wait between 2 and 4 months from signing to delivery. But that patience is generously rewarded by the unique character of the items they receive!
