In the shade of an olive tree or in the coolness of the old walls, you will take the time to discover real know-how, to quietly choose your garden pot or your salad bowl.

A fountain to cool off in, a garden to stroll around in, scenes to dream about...

Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Founded in 1837, Poterie Ravel is one of the oldest ceramic factories in France.

Family business for 5 generations that perpetuate an authentic and rare know-how.



Extracted from our quarries, raw material, we ensure its transformation in our establishment to control its purity, its color which is specific to it.


Our vases are made using the technique of calibration, a piece of wood guided by the hand of man, which will distribute the clay along the walls of the mould.


For vases less than 35 cm high, potters make all shapes, thus bringing an incomparable touch and soul to each piece.


The finish provided by our specialists to each piece gives our products a smooth and silky grain. Each vase is stamped RAVEL, then signed and dated by the ceramist who shaped it.


Our 4 gas ovens carry out cooking programs up to 1020° in 68 hours to ensure cooking at the heart of the vases.
