‘La Terre est vernissée’ (The Earth is glazed)
This is the theme of this 34th market (the largest in France), which brings together some 140 ceramists and potters on Place Saint-Jean, in the Old Lyon.
In 2019, the spotlight is on glazed earthenware: colourful, cheerful and very popular in the region. While its history and traditions are well represented, the creativity of young ceramists, who master the technique and revisit it with a contemporary approach, is also expressed.
Contemporary and classical pieces are exhibited in the Cour des Lazaristes, while a space dedicated to film screenings and conferences offers a better understanding of this craft industry.
The ‘Tupiniers du Vieux Lyon’ market is recognised beyond our region as a reference in the area of ceramic artworks and artisanry, attracting specialists from all over Europe each year.
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of September 2019, 9 am to 7 pm.
