Brand story

Founded in 1953, the Faïencerie de la Baie is an essential artisan workshop in the bay of Mont Saint Michel. Martine and Jean Claude Gourlaouen took over it in 1980 and have maintained excellent know-how for more than 40 years. Jean-Claude is an art technician from the Ecole de Sèvres, university located within the prestigious Manufacture de Porcelaine de Sèvres, in operation since the 18th century.

La Faïencerie de la Baie manufactures earthenware by turning, casting and grading. The decorations are entirely handmade, inspired by Normandy. The workshop carries out all the stages of manufacture: mixing of components (chalk, flint, clay, etc.), turning, casting, grading, drying, firing the biscuit, decoration, enamelling and final firing. Throughout the manufacturing process, dexterity and aesthetic sense are essential.

Filled with knowledge and experience that have only evolved, Martine and Jean Claude have passed on their know-how to dozens of apprentices and trainees. There was a time when more than fifteen employees worked at the earthenware workshop.
