Exhibition "Het aardewerk van de pottenbakkerij Dupont te Poperinge" (The earthenware of pottery Dupont in Poperinge), 8 - 15 October 2006, in Gasthuiskapel, Gasthuisstraat 3, Poperinge. Opening hours 10h - 12h and 13h30 - 17h. Pottery Dupont was working in Poperinge from 1846 till 1975, but it was the successor of an age-long tradition of potters at the Burgemeester Bertenplein in the centre of the city. Thanks to remains from the workshop, several earthenware shapes, a catalogue dated 1895 and the production books of Louis Verelst-Dupont, it was possible to reconstruct the production of this important earthenware centre.

Study-day "Het aardewerk van de pottenbakkerij Dupont te Poperinge" (The earthenware of pottery Dupont in Poperinge), Saturday, October 7, 2006 in the Town Hall of Poperinge. Information: Volkskunde West-Vlaanderen, Balstraat 46, 8000 Brugge.

Bulletin Mensen & Dingen, 2006-3 will be entirely dedicated to this exhibition.

Order from: La Maison du Patrimoine, Allées de Carpinet, 33290, Blanquefort, Tél. +33 5 56 57 19 42, € 20. L'étude de plus de 1 000 éléments issus des fouilles de la forteresse médiévale de Blanquefort a permis à l'auteur de réaliser un inventaire complet de cette importante collection inédite et d'isoler 58 motifs différents, étudiés en parallèle avec les autres carreaux mis au jour sur différents sites de la Gironde.

Book JACOTIN, M. et HITZEL, F. - Céramiques Ottomanes d'Iznik, collections du Musée National de la Renaissance, éd. de la Réunion des Musées Nationaux, 224 p., 500 col. ill., 45 € . L’extraordinaire collection de céramiques silico-alcalines ottomanes souvent qualifiées à tort de "faïences d'Iznik" autrefois constituée par le Musée de Cluny est aujourd'hui présentée au Musée national de la Renaissance à Écouen (conservateur Thierry Crépin-Leblond). "Cet ouvrage présente enfin de manière exhaustive une collection unique au monde représentative de la production des ateliers d’Iznik et de Kütaya entre 1530 et le milieu du XVIIe siècle. Il met notamment en évidence les affinités que cette production entretient avec la majolique italienne, rappelant ainsi les relations ininterrompues et fructueuses entre les mondes chrétien et ottoman".

Book DELOR, J.P. - L'industrie de la tuile et de la brique au nord de l'Yonne, 254 p., 450 ill. coul., édité par l'Association Bourguignonne de Recherches céramiques, Dijon, 2005, 22 €, à commander directement au Siège social de l'ABRC, c/o Musée archéologique, 5, rue du Dr Maret, 21000 Dijon.
C'est à partir de la fin du XVIIIe siècle que l'habitat rural du nord de l'Yonne utilise la terre cuite architecturale, tuiles et briques qui remplacent la couverture de chaume et les pans de bois. Cette industrie va connaître son maximum d'expansion vers 1870 pour péricliter avec le conflit de 1914-1918. Trois enquêtes menées dans le Senonais, au sud de la forêt d'Othe et dans l'Aillantais permettent d'apprécier divers aspects de cette activité : l'évolution de la production, la diffusion locale et sur la région parisienne, l'aspect architectural des constructions nouvelles, l'endogamie des tuiliers…
