All expressions of ceramics in Paris

FOR INFORMATION: THE DATES OF THE EVENT ARE EXCEPTIONAL FOR THIS YEAR IN CONSIDERATION OF THE HEALTH ISSUES.
SAINT-SULPICE CERAMIQUE IS USUALLY HELD AT THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER.

 

Come to Place Saint Sulpice to see an exceptional variety of ceramic creations and materials : sculptural or utilitarian, traditional or contemporary, raw or enamelled ceramics, plus sandstone, raku, glazed pottery, and porcelain. For four days, ceramic lovers as well as neophytes, art world professionals, architects, and interior designers can meet more than one hundred ceramists from all over the world in a relaxed atmosphere.

Every year Saint-Sulpice Céramique has a booth highlighting new ceramic creations, and they invite their favourite recently graduated ceramist. You will also find the Café Céramique, where you can choose a mug and discuss how it was made, free workshops for children and adults, a host of tools and utensils to begin working with clay, as well as specialized books and magazines. There will be lectures every afternoon on various subjects, from history to philosophy, covering a lot of ground along the way. Come and meet the clay artists, share their warmth and their world under Parisian skies.

FOCUS 2020

“OUR GARDENS”

This year, ParisPotier’s team chose to tell a story about ceramics in the garden. You’ll find flower pots and sculptures, tables and garden stools, tea sets, bird houses, all the superfluous elements that help us live in harmony with nature, even if it’s just a tiny flowered balcony. Plants and flowers in specially-baked artistic pots will be placed around the premises. Beyond the important ecological aspect of the installation, it’s also lovely to see leaves swaying gently in the breeze, different shades of green and other colours, plus the variety of pots on display together.
