A unique collection of French Mid-Century Ceramics.
These rare, signed ceramics were produced in France between 1945 and the end of the seventies.
Traditional pottery-making practices adapted to a changing world and engaged with modern art, a decisive move initiated by Picasso at Vallauris, which revolutionized forms and techniques. The wealth and diversity of 1950s French pottery is illustrated by the careers of some forty potters: Roger Capron, Jean Derval, Elisabeth Joulia and Suzanne Ramié among them. Some achieved timelessness, others represent high points in a past era, yet all have a bearing upon our own modernity.
Our collection of large stoneware bowls are ideal to drink Matcha Tea - and can easily match the most beautifully crafted Chawan - traditional Japanese matcha bowls.
