Furnaces and finesse: France's Sèvres ceramics factory

France's Sèvres factory, just outside Paris, has been a mecca for ceramics for nearly three centuries. Every ten years, it's the scene of a very special event: the lighting of the great kiln. For the most recent edition, 40 unique pieces of pottery were created, then put in the furnace for 33 hours for a spectacular final result. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover the factory and its highly skilled team of workers.
