Exotic lamps and vases

  • • François is a third generation ceramicist
  • • He designed ceramic lamps for hotel Relais Christine and Brasserie La Lorraine
  • • His atelier Jean Roger is one of the oldest in Paris

Since its founding in 1947, atelier Jean Roger has become an integral part of the Parisian ceramic scene. Renowned for its animal vases and exotic fruit lamps, over the years Jean Roger has attracted the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Louboutin and Coco Chanel. Today, the atelier is managed by the founder’s grandson François Roger, who intends to bring the family’s ceramic savoir-faire into the 21st century. “We still respect the original techniques of the Jean Roger ceramics and maintain the identity of the workshop,” says François. In the atelier François likes to showcase both new designs and Jean Roger classics, such as the ceramic frogs, artichokes and pineapples that brought the atelier its original fame.
