Quimper Faïence

Locmaria, the earthenware quarters...

La faïencerie Henriot-Quimper

Quimper and the earthenware heve benne closely blended for more than three centuries.

Here in 1690, Jean-Baptiste Bousquet, from Marseille (Provence), built the first Breton earthenware factory.

The factories manufactured utilitarian crockery, paintings on earthenware, decorative piece...

Even today, Quimper perpetuates this tradition thanks to :

Faïencerie Henriot-Quimper

Faïencerie Henriot-Quimper carries on the art of hand-painted earthenware, Quimper famous "stroke of the brush" tradition. Since 1690, each piece is entirely painted without transfers or traces.
