Museum Mediterranean Pottery - Saint Quentin la Poterie
Room of earthenware storage jars
The Mediterranean Pottery Museum, based on the collections of Arnaud Maurières and Eric Ossart, takes you on a virtual journey through the daily life of a traditional peasant in the Mediterranean region.
Bowl - Nabeul, Tunisia

Octopus Trap- Tunisia

 

Several hundred pieces of pottery made for everyday or ceremonial use (from France, Spain, Egypt, Crete, Morocco, Tunisia...) are displayed, as well as ancient pottery from St-Quentin. You will be guided towards the cellar, where oils and grains are stored in rounded earthenware jars. Then, you will proceed to the kitchen, which is full of earthenware pots and braziers, and finally, you will see the collection of multicolored glazed earthenware, the plates and pitchers used for feast days.
 
The upcoming exhibition, "The potter who drew fish," will be devoted to the workshops of Nabeul, Tunisia, and it will take place from June to October 2002.
