The Castle of Florennes (also known as the Castle of Beaufort) is a former castle located in Florennes (Hertogenpark), in the province of Namur, Belgium. A first castle was built in wood on a rocky ridge west of the town of Florennes in the ninth century and was replaced by a stone structure in the tenth century. It now houses a school and is used for educational purposes by the city of Florennes.
Bouffioulx is a village in the Belgian province of Hainaut and a sub-municipality of the municipality of Châtelet. The village is known in the area as the village of potters. The subsoil of the village contains good quality clay, which is suitable for making pottery.
Master ceramist Sylvain Hublet lived in Mont-sur-Marchienne with a workshop in Val d'heure in the Belgian Ardennes. His work after 1930 was typified by a specific Art Deco influence.
