Since 1740, the Manufacture de Sèvres has demonstrated its dedication to both heritage preservation and artistic experimentation. The Manufacture constitutes a unique living laboratory, as well as an influential player within the art world, notably for design and the decorative arts. It benefits from the excellence and expertise of its 120 on-site ceramicists mastering some thirty specialized trades, as well as from the excellence of its materials (pastes, colours, enamels…) produced in situ according to ancestral techniques and today serving as exceptional tools for contemporary artistic expression.
