  • Bernard Palissy (1510-1589), is what can be called a brilliant inventor, who has given everything to arrive at his ends. Several times arrested and sentenced to death due to Protestantism, he died in the Bastille of ill-treatment in 1589!! Yet, despite its misfortunes, this obstinate, which is in the presence of Chinese porcelain in 1536, will do everything to discover its secret of manufacture. After twenty years of effort, Bernard Palissy discovers the glaze in a jasped email, which now covers his pottery. The work of this genius is immense with ceramics which, in particular, are at the Château d'ecouen and in the museums. This statue of Palissy, from Felix Desruelles square, near the Church of Saint Germain des Pres, was elevated at the request of the city of Paris in 1883. Louis Ernest Barrias, was the creator sculptor and the realization was led by the founder Thiebault Frères. Bernard Palissy is standing, in Renaissance style, with the high collar, the puking trousers, the socks and wears a work apron. He holds with his left hand, a dish of his production, decorated with a snake, and he is standing near his stove. The setting of this square is appropriate, since a monumental door of the manufacture de Sèvres, which owes everything to Bernard Palissy, adorns the wall of the bottom.

  • From the French Renaissance school, Bernard Pallisy was a painter, Potter, glassmaker and writer. He died in Paris in 1590. To honor him, in this small square, will take place a sculpture created in 1883 by Louis Ernest Barrias. It represents Bernard Palissy, standing, holding in his left hand a large ceramic dish. You can come by Metro, line 4 station "Saint Germain des Prés".

  • Bernard Parisey (Bernard Palissy, circa 1510 – 1590) is a France potter. I was able to see two crisp sea statues in Paris (on the left side of Saint Germain Prés Church and right in front of the Sable Museum).
