Alfred Renoleau

French ceramist, known for his production of naturalistic earthenware, directly inspired by the creations of Bernard Palissy (1510-1590). Nothing predestined this hairdresser to become an earthenware maker, and yet in 1891 he created the Angoulême earthenware factory. From this factory, he produced earthenware, but also flamed, iridescent or crystallized stoneware, and from 1905, art-nouveau stoneware. In addition to his creative work, his workshops produce a catalogue of crockery, pots of all kinds, vases, ashtrays... The faience factory closed its doors a few years ago.
