CURRENT EXHIBITION Sèvres, Reinventing the world

Since its very beginning, the Manufactory of Sèvres has been a symbolic centre of porcelain creation for artists from all walks of life. Objects, techniques and ideas are exchanged at the Manufactory, helping to enrich its production and spread its fame.
Porcelain - that white, translucent, glossy ceramic - developed by the potters of China, has always fascinated Westerners whose attempts to imitate it date back to the Middle Ages.Having successfully mastered this Sèvres, Reinventing the world challenging material, the artisans of Sèvres imaginatively and elegantly reinvent art objects from other cultures.
Using expertise handed down since the eighteenth century, French and international guest artists create artworks including plates to adorn the tables of State and works of bold and varied shape, inviting the observer on a journey over the world’s continents.
