Created by Charles Rene Neveux, the Cerenne workshop takes its name from the contraction of its corporate name “René Neveux Ceramics”.
At the height of its reputation, the workshop is one of the largest in Vallauris, it has about fifty people and employs 15 decorators. Its production ranges from utility ceramics to unique pieces with a number of special orders for French as well as international customers.
There are also pieces of furniture with ceramic decoration. The pieces signed by René Neveux are relatively rare.
