Musée de la Céramique Lezoux

Lezoux | Archeology
€2.5 - €5
Housed in the former Bompard sandstone and earthenware factory, the departmental ceramics museum has been open to the public since March 14, 2007. A true living museum for all, it presents visitors with a fun and educational permanent route. They will thus make the discovery of the manufacture, the diffusion of ceramics sigillées of Lezoux and the daily of the potters during Antiquity.

The museum allows the discovery of the archaeological wealth of Lezoux in a factory of the nineteenth century rehabilitated. An interactive and fun animation transports the visitor into the world of ceramics through the creations of 1200 potters identified in Lezoux during Antiquity. The museum presents collections from the archaeological site of Lezoux. Lezoux was one of the largest ceramics production centers of the Roman Empire.

On tens of hectares, the potters fashioned hundreds of millions of vases. Among these productions, the most important and most notable is that of sigillated ceramics. It is a bright red tableware, with a rather large repertoire of shapes (plates, cups, cups ...). This ceramic was made during the first five centuries of our era, with techniques, styles or shapes that have evolved over time. Mass marketed and manufactured in series, this dish reflects above all the spread of Romanesque throughout Europe.
