A Fifth-Generation Pottery in France: Poterie Renault

February 10, 2015

When I was a child growing up in Northumberland, England, trips to France always included a visit to local potteries. One of my favorite pieces from those days is a simple, salt-glazed jug from Poterie Renault. Located in Argent sur Sauldre, near Orleans, France, the fifth-generation, family-run workshop continues to make rustic salt-glazed stoneware the old-fashioned way. Lately we’ve noticed pieces popping up all over the place (Is the pottery having a resurgence?). Here’s a sampling.
