The porcelain pastes are produced on-site, as are Sèvres’ enamels and colours.
Sèvres produces and distributes porcelain artworks, everyday items and decorative objects, drawing inspiration from a rich ceramic heritage of traditional and contemporary models figuring among its extensive collections. Sèvres’ heritage is ever renewed by the creations of its guest artists and designers.
Three workshops shape plaster models used to create the moulds that are in turn used to produce porcelain objects, while in the turning workshop the paste is shaped directly on the wheel.
Sèvres - Cité de la céramique a souhaité produire à nouveau l’une des plus extravagantes oeuvres jamais réalisées à la Manufacture : Le Vaisseau à mât.
