At the start of the twentieth
century, as in other French
pottery centers, culinary
pottery began to decline, with
competition from metal
containers. The economic
crisis at the end of the 1930s,
and the arrival of more
suitable materials (aluminum,
cast iron, stainless steel, etc.)
took pottery away from its
utilitarian function and began,
towards the end of the 1940s,
a very different development:
ceramics artistic.

This artistic movement is
present from the end of the
nineteenth century with the
Massier family. Clément,
Delphin and Jérôme
introduced colored enamels
and metallic pigments into
their ceramics.
In 1930, Jean Gerbino
(1876-1966) opened a
workshop in which he created
numerous pottery pieces by
applying his unique mosaic

process of colored earths.
But it was in 1947, with the
arrival of Picasso and his
astonishing ceramic
production carried out at the
Madoura workshop, that the
image of u as a traditional
pottery center definitively
gave way to that of a city
where artists rub shoulders.
and artisans.
