Conceived as expressions of art, this pottery was produced at the turn of the century by P. Jeanneney, G. Hoentschel, E. Grittel, T. Perrot, P. Pacton, N. de Barck, H. de Vallombreuse, W. Lee, E. Lion and J. Pointu, inspired by Jean Carriès (called a "brilliant initiator") whose works had attained the heights of the potter's art within only a few years.

The group strongly influenced the developement of modern ceramics.

The museum displays more than 250 significant, and often exceptional, pieces belonging to this movement. Some 50 pieces are by Carriès himself, representing the largest collection of his work at the present time.
