A customised production tool

The factory of Céramiques de France is one of the few to mass-produce artisanal-quality ceramics for outdoor use... This implies a working tool really customised for the manufacture of unique objects, controls giving the end-customer the assurance of a high-quality product that will remain stable for many years. Let’s go for a visit, from the raw material to the object ready for shipping.

Cast products

Casting

Séchage

In order to make a cast object, you must have a mould (here made in plaster). This delicate operation, mould casting, consists of filling a matrix (the mother mould) with liquid plaster to create the mould that will enable production of the objects.

Drying

Once cast, the objects are removed from the mould and dried for several days. Here we see a vase removed from the mould.

Glazing

The objects are glazed by dipping or spraying. They are then put into the kiln and fired at 1250° centigrade for 24 hours.

Pose des chromosLayering colour prints

Porcelain plaques benefit from an additional manufacturing stage by layering colour prints and text, before a second firing.

Assembly / Packaging

The plaques then receive screws and bolts, which allows families to insert an inter-text containing the honoured person’s name.

Modelling and glazing

Each piece is shaped and then glazed by hand.
This way it constitutes an object that is unique and different.

For all our customers our skilled female workers' know-how is a guarantee of a high-quality finished product.

Firing

Quality tests

All products are visually inspected and those that do not meet exactly the required quality level are removed from the circuit.

Shipping

Shipments to the domestic and all export markets are managed from our site in Bethune. Céramiques de France: French-made products that sell well abroad...

A question of vocabulary

Behind every word, a clearly-defined technique... that’s why we call porcelain objects cast (moulded) items, as opposed to shaped flowers, which are called ceramics.
