Boch Frčres Kéramis

Boch Frčres Kéramis was a factory founded by Victor Boch in 1841 in La Louvičre in Belgium.

The Boch family began to produce pottery from 1767 in Luxembourg. They settled in Belgium after the separation of Belgium from Luxembourg in 1839, and in 1841, founded the factory Kéramis in La Louvičre, using the trade name Boch Frčres. They produced a wide range of earthenware and stoneware, including white-bodied earthenware for household and table use and pieces in imitation of Delft and Middle eastern pottery.

In 1906, Boch Frčres hired a new artistic director, Charles Catteau, and the firm began to produce distinctively decorated artware vases in an ovoid shape. Catteau introduced decorative influences from Japan, from modern art (such as cubism), and various African traditional elements. Boch Frčres Kéramis pottery has become known for the combination of attractive shapes with innovative mixtures of image and style.
