Sèvres Cité de la Céramique

Odyssey is a meeting point between French tradition and American innovation. The vase ‘Ly’, which inspired this design, is a 19th century Icon designed by the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres. Here it is mounted in an oversized version with a floating top of anodised aluminium made by specialist Neal Feay, in California.

Since its origins in 1740, more than 270 years ago, the Manufacture de Sèvres has never ceased to create work in porcelain.  Three centuries of traditional manufacturing joined today by the potential of contemporary design.
