Clay from the Rhine plain has been used since the time of polished stone. In 1850, 30 villages in the Bas-Rhin were still devoted to this activity. Only two centers remain today: Betschdorf and Soufflenheim. If the colored pottery from Soufflenheim is used for cooking, the gray pots with cobalt blue decorations from Betschdorf are used to preserve food (oil, lard, pickles, cabbage, eggs). Two parallel stories, two production methods. Discover Betschdorf salt stoneware.
