Espace Culturel du Four Pontet

A former pot oven modernized by Mr. Pontet, the factory has become an essential exhibition venue in Niortais since 1998.
Magnesian pottery is an old industry whose first traces of activity date back to the Neolithic period. The first known workshop was born at the beginning of the 1980th century and the last closed in XNUMX. Magné manufactured utilitarian objects (milk jugs, pots, coffee pots, mogette pots) and decorative objects (flower pots in the shape of “Tours” and “ Paris”), as well as devotional articles sold to pilgrims to Sainte-Macrine.
