Heir to a long pottery tradition linked to a subsoil rich in clay soil, Vallauris has distinguished itself for many years thanks to culinary ceramics. It was only at the end of the 19th century that artistic ceramics appeared alongside this traditional production. This was notably introduced by the Massier family ...

It was in the 1950s that Vallauris ceramics experienced its " Golden age », A period during which we will witness the advent of big names such as Roger Collet, Gilbert Portanier, Roger Capron, Jean Derval…
Today, the artistic tradition continues with talent and Vallauris continues to give birth to new artists.
