Thanks to the importance and the quality of its deposits of clay and stone oven, Biot became the largest Mediterranean centre of production of jars. In the middle of the 17TH century, there were about 40 of pottery. Their huge production was widely exported throughout the Mediterranean and on the American continent. The Museum has an important collection of these jars whose manufacturing extends from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Little by little, the biotoise pottery evolved into the ceramic utility, decorative and varied. 18th and 19th centuries indoor fountains in the Museum represent perfectly this art popular and refined.
