Behind the place des Vosges, in a street that still lives and breaths the craftsmanship of a beautiful Paris of old, this little family workshop is a romantic and simple space.
Just like his father and his grandfather Jean, François Roger is a ceramist.
He inherited a savoir-faire, a set of tools and a catalogue (sketchbook, moulds, recipes for enamel) that were the admiration of Jackie Kennedy and Cristian Dior. Certain of his deep coloured decorative pieces became and have remained classics. A bistro sugar container in the form of a frog), a bowl in the form of a cabbage, lamps in the form of monkeys, artichokes and pineapples.
Jean Roger frequented the bourgeois houses of the second half of the 20th century. Today Francois Roger honours and enriches his heritage by producing as much as his team and ovens can manage, by creating new pieces and by working with the greatest decoration experts. The rare private collectors, with whom he has direct contact, are almost all foreigners. Mainly American and Japanese.
