Henriot faïencerie of Quimper

The result of a merger between H.B. and Henriot, this three-century-old firm was bought by an American in 1984. One of the few remaining pottery works in France that continues to decorate all its production entirely by hand, without any transfers: Breton peasants in traditional costume, birds, cockerels and botanical motifs. The workshops provide an insight into the manufacturing process from the clay to the firing. Boutique on the way out of the factory.
