    • In the heart of the Landes, Samadet has imprinted its name on the land of Tursan, building its centuries-old reputation around the "Royal Fayances Factory" created in 1732 by the Abbot of Roquépine.

      Discover trades, some unknown and others disappeared, such as the painter, the turner, the moulder, the lime-burner, the empernetter, the handler, who have worked and shown all their know-how so that this pottery prospers and shines far beyond our borders for 100 years.

      Come and contemplate the panorama of Samadet productions and appreciate the finesse of the decorations and objects that have become collections.

      TEMPORARY EXHIBITION

      I Eat Therefore I Am: Edible Cultures May 21 to November 13, 2022

      How is man, as a species, defined by what he eats?

      How does the act of nourishment, vital and daily, shape our identities through cultural practices, rituals or taboos? What role has food played in our evolution? Are there “gendered” foods?

      exhibition I eat, therefore I am explores the biological, cultural and ecological facets of a subject that affects everyone: food.

      In a sometimes offbeat staging, the course alternates substantive themes, social debates and “surprise” subjects. At the crossroads between past and present, culture and nature, art and science, food nourishes stomachs, minds and imaginations.

      Created in 2020 for the Musée de l'Homme in Paris, this exhibition presents the research carried out by the scientists of the National Museum of Natural History. Hosted at the Museum of earthenware and tableware in Samadet, it will present - in 2022 - culinary heritage and table manners around the world, before tackling, in 2023, environmental issues related to the production of resources to feed humanity today and tomorrow.

      Enough to satiate the greediest... of knowledge!

      Around the exhibition

      May 14 at 7:00 p.m. European Night of Museums : meeting with Pierre-Brice Lebrun who will tell you in his gourmet talk "The call of the belly", the secret history of certain foods such as potatoes, melon, chickpeas, etc.

      June 11 at 4:00 p.m. Meeting with Christophe Lavelle , scientific curator of the exhibition who is a researcher at the CNRS and the National Museum of Natural History, in Paris.

      9 October at 4.00 pm Week of taste : meeting with Eric Birlouez, who will tell you about “History of taste from homo habilis to 19th century man”.

      October 16 at 4:00 p.m. Taste Week : meeting with Nora Bouazzouni, journalist and author of two essays on food.

    35 km south of Mont-de-Marsan on the road to Hagetmau, the museum of faience and tableware welcomes you to Samadet, charming village of Tursan. In a vast white building, this departmental museum is devoted to the history and the secrets of faience manufacture, historical heritage of the Landes. Founded in 1730 by the Marquis and Abbé de Roquépine, the pottery of Samadet quickly became a Royal Manufactory with many associated privileges. In the first room of the earthenware museum, imagine the operation of this factory thanks to its representation on a large panel. Then contemplate some 300 pieces of faience Samadet, known for the quality of local clays and their delicate decorations of butterflies, roses or even pigeons. The highlight of the visit is a precious vinegar cruet with a prancing horse. In the last room, devoted to the arts of the table, period tables are set in a refined and cozy atmosphere. A very professional retired lady gives you explanations on the manufacture of faience and its different stages of cooking and painting, when you are in a group. Then you have the shop that offers several souvenirs. Free private parking is available.
