Musée de la Faïence et de la Poterie

Museum (FERRIERE-LA-PETITE)


There is a real treasure inside this museum: the monumental "bottle oven" measuring a colossal ten metres in diameter and twenty metres in height. Baking clay in this oven, built around 1890, was an elaborate procedure that took 70 hours. Guided tours take you through the technique of salt glaze pottery and tell you the history of pottery and earthenware in Ferriere. Lessons and longer courses in ceramics are offered here, for those wishing to learn the techniques of working with clay.
