• After learning all the secrets (well, almost) of production we will go to Moustiers-Sainte Marie. Town famous for its relations with the Sun King Louis 14th and Marie Antoinette. It was right here that porcelain was produced for the king himself thanks to local resources and particularly the triad — water, wood, fine clay. We will go for a walk on the cobblestone streets, plunging more and more into the Middle Ages. Many atelliers offer products from porcelain (‘faience’) for every taste We will visit one of them – a pottery workshop that for more than 200 years turns clay into real fine pieces of art using medieval technology. You won’t find a single identical thing, each product is unique and truely not repeatable. The owner of the store will tell you a lot of interesting things about the history of porcelain and his workshop.
