Founded in 1947, Maison Jean Roger is worldwide known and celebrated for its exquisite, original ceramics. The founder, Jean, was a young pottery specialist with vision and boldness: by the mid-fifties he had singled himself out by creating original designs that inspired art collectors and famous designers, including Hans Knoll. Jean Roger elevated the art of ceramic and faience by setting new trends in ceramic styles – including animals and exotic fruits– as well as mastering new original shapes. Jean was soon joined by his son Jean-Jacques who introduced the “trompe-l’oeil” enamel glaze, a trailblazing coating technique on earthenware that became his signature. Now, the grandson François has joined the family workshop, perfecting new techniques of his own.
