Arts and materials

Handcrafted in a workshop located in Tuscany, Italy since 1921, the Canon large bowl is made entirely by hand. First cast and then demolded to obtain the round shape that provides its generous character, the Canon large bowl is then fired a first time. Once the decorative design has been hand-painted by a master decorator, the bowl is fired a second time to ensure optimal color fixation. 

From the great family of ceramics, the designer selected faïence earthenware. Named after the Italian city of Faenza, this is one of the oldest materials used in ceramics. It enables the reproduction of elaborate decorations while vividly bringing out the colors. The Canon large bowl's combination of bright colors and matte finish is a feat of craftsmanship that only a few workshops still have the ability to achieve.


The Canon large bowl and its sunny color palette are inspired by Henri Matisse's painting "La Musique" (1939). The combination of geometric shapes and plant shapes forms a pictorial score that plunges the object into a timeless universe. 

Starting from the interpretation of a single painting, the designer wished to echo all the painter's artistic pursuits with the ultimate goal of preserving his spirit, highlighting the boldness of his creation, and conveying his values.

Marta Bakowski

Maison Matisse invited the young designer Marta Bakowski to create its first permanent collection inspired by the painting La Musique (1939). The Franco-Polish designer took the palette of colors and brilliantly reinterpreted the most representative themes of Henri Matisse's work, such as the philodendron leaf, the figure of the woman and music.
