The teaching of ceramics in Québec began in the 1920s at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal. Inspired by the precepts of Art Deco, many students will come to establish small studios and workshops producing functional ware and decorative items. Others came to work for larger manufactures, such as Céramique de Beauce. With the growing development of industrial design in Québec in the 1960s, Céramique de Beauce began hiring designers to conceive the company’s high-end modernist production lines. During the 1970s, other craftsmen became industrialists themselves, establishing manufactures mass-producing utilitarian ceramics; this is for example the case for SIAL.
