The French potter Roger Guérin (1896-1954) had a studio in the Belgian town of Bouffioulx. This place was known as the village of the potters, because the clay in the area is suitable for making hard-baked pottery, since the 15th century baking was done here in this way and Roger Guérin came here in 1918. Roger Guérin's workshop made decorative pottery including vases, sculptures and tiles and grew into a factory where work was also made after designs by others such as Chris Lebeau and Cris Agterberg.
