Background

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 Royère, Maison Jansen, Dior and Chanel. 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 with his sister Marguerite, perfecting new techniques of their own.

Signature Style

A perfect balance between heritage and innovation with a collection that includes classic shapes revisited with a playful, bold eye. A mix of unexpected styles inspired by nature, that encompass minimalist bowls and over the top objects. All the designs are handmade and unique. François Roger works closely with renowned architects and interior decorators creating bespoke pieces for their projects.

Showstoppers
Some beautiful, nature-inspired wall sconces; exquisitely elegant vases and a few reissues from the sixties – including the Flammes vase in white faience coated with special glossy black enamel.
