Faïences Lambert’s factory was created in 1960 at the initiative of Paul Lambert, earthenware maker trained at Nevers school.


Upon his arrival, Paul Lambert showed a keen interest in the "Rouennais" style, which had its peak at the end of the 18th century, and whose production, in its Norman cradle, ceased in the middle of the 19th century.


After months of studies, dealing with the enamels used, decorative motifs and other attributes typical of the Rouen style, Paul Lambert was able to revive this regional style, which until then had fallen into disuse.


Paul Lambert then produced a wide variety of pieces, some of them for heads of state, including General De Gaulle.


After working in the family earthenware for fifteen years, Luc Lambert took over the torch in the early 90s to perpetuate these exceptional know-how. 


If Lambert Faïencerie has in the past, presented its creations on the shelves of famous Parisian brands (BHV, Les Nouvelles Galleries), globalization and low-cost mass production have changed the situation.



At the antipodes of the consumable objects flooding the shelves of the large distribution, the Faïencerie Lambert nowadays favors the exceptional hand-made pieces, in his art factory.


In addition to the items presented for sale, Faïencerie Lambert makes various pieces to order, for the benefit of public bodies, associations or individuals, and disseminates its products in France and abroad. 


These unique achievements are a testimony of all the techniques mastered by Luc Lambert.


In detail, the creation of each work requires different stages: 

  • Modeling the piece from clay
  • First cooking
  • Soaking the piece in the white enamel bath
  • Delicate decoration work
  • Second cooking around at around 1000°C (1832°F)

These remarkable skills were recognized in 2007, by obtaining the "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" (living heritage company) label.
