Petit Futé's opinion on MUSÉE DU FOUR DES CASSEAUX

Vintage plate 2020

This museum, managed by the association Espace Porcelaine, houses an old round kiln from the 19th century, listed as a historical monument. 19 metres high and over 7 metres wide, this remarkably well-preserved relic, unique in France, gives an idea of human activity and the mastery of fire necessary for the operation of this brick monster. The furnace could, in a single batch, fire 10,000 to 15,000 pieces of porcelain at two different temperatures for a whole week! Of the 135 wood-fired kilns in the city at the beginning of the 20th century, this is one of the last still standing and the only one that can be visited. The visit is free, but a guided tour allows a better understanding of the different phases of porcelain manufacture and the evolution of techniques. There are temporary exhibitions.

Visite intéressante et insolite que ce four à porcelaine, l'intérêt est de voir la réalisation de porcelaine lors de la visite. Préférez la visite guidée à 4 euros, car on en apprend beaucoup plus qu'avec une visite libre.
