ABOUT

Since its creation in 1740, the Manufacture de Sèvres has been pivotal in bringing artists together. The artisanal techniques they specialize in have enabled the most exceptional, innovative pieces to be created, under the direction of both famous and new artists. In October 2016, for the first time in ten years, Sèvres repaired and relit the biggest of its six wood kilns that dates from the 19th century. Three major contemporary artists were invited to the Manufacture in honour of this event: Nicolas Buffe, Philippe Cognée and Barthélémy Toguo. They threw themselves into this ‘test of fire’, painting on Sèvres vases which will be revealed at BRAFA 2017.
