Conceived in the early 60s at the request of New York decorator David Barrett, Jean Roger used the 18th-century Chinese porcelain model to invent what would become one of the studio's flagship ceramics.
The frog in medium size, the very first model designed by Jean Roger in the 60s.
For autumn-winter, it's available in emerald green, cognac and aqua pink. It's ideal for use in a pocket or as a small planter.

Perfect as a planter or pot holder, the large frog is also ideal for decorating gardens and homes. A decorative ceramic object, it can be slipped into your garden or add a touch of whimsy to your interior.
Ceramic ware has been used and decorated in many cultures around the world since ancient times. Under the Romans, it was made from clay and was already decorating homes and gardens. Over the centuries, and particularly from the Renaissance onwards, it became an object of craftsmanship, requiring a level of skill and originality that each factory claimed for itself, and a level of technicality that reached its peak in the 18th century. Numerous factories were created thanks to the influence and renown of Chinese porcelain, which France sought to imitate at all costs. Strasbourg, Saint-Cloud, Vincennes, Marseilles, Pont-aux-Choux, Rouen, Nevers, Sèvres... Artisans abounded in creativity, giving French tableware a unique and unrivalled style. Ceramic objets d'art have thus become highly prized decorative objects over the centuries, and ceramics as a means of artistic expression is now widespread, attracting an ever-growing public.
L'histoire de la grenouille was born out of a meeting between Jean Roger and American decorator David Barett in the 60s, who suggested that Jean Roger revisit the Chinese porcelain frog model and turn it into a friendly object covered in shimmering enamel. From then on, the workshop developed its own enameling technique and began to search for its own colors, which today define its style and delight customers all over the world.
