We are going to the South of France this summer and wanted to know if there
are any interesting places for a Potter to visit. Please give me your

Try Biot - about 20miles inland from Juan Les Pins. It is a pottery village
and worth seeing (as are the amazing graveyards). Remember, however, that
everything is closed between noon and 2.00 pm.

We were in the south of France this fall and visited a pottery where the
potter gave me a copy of a brochure called "Potiers de Vaucluse. It contains
the names of 21 potters in that area with a map showing their locations,
their addresses and a photo of their work. If you would send me your snail
mail address, I'll send you a photocopy. Some wonderful pieces.
The Vaucluse(Peter Mayle's area) is near Avignon.

The Quebec Ceramics Guild is planning an exchange visit with the potters of
Provence. The area is in the south of France near Vaucluse. You could get
in touch with a Jean Noel Peignon, Poterie du Four a Chaux, 84330 Caromb.
Tele: 04 90 65 1641. He may be able to steer you to some good sites.
