Portrait of Georges Jouve working



Georges Jouve is a figurehead of ceramic field in France. He is a true poet of ceramics and he has a prolix art: he plays with lines, glazes and colors. His work is marked by a great dexterity can be seen as much in his utilitarian pieces such as the Rouleau vases as in his more sculptural pieces such as his Toupies.
