Chronology

 

For 3 generations, the Jamet family has been in the world of ceramics. It was in 1974 that Daniel Jamet created the JAMET Pottery. She then produced her first ceramics, mainly miters and lanterns for fireplaces.

 

Quickly recognized for the quality of its monumental pieces and the durability of the more classic ones, the Jamet Pottery was approved by the Historic Monuments of France in 1979 and has kept this approval ever since.
