Mid century modern French ceramics by Roger Capron.
This book pays tribute to Roger Capron, the (until shortly) unsung master of French ceramics and art pottery.
A remarkable and lavishly illustrated coffee table book about the wonderful work by the French master of ceramics Roger Capron. The work by Roger Capron
embodies the warm spirit and flavor of Vallauris and the Cote d'Azur. In addition, his works exhibits a unique mid century modern touch.
Major potter of the 20th century, Roger Capron settled at an early age in Vallauris France, where he worked with Robert Picault and then Jean Derval.
Roger Capron later focused on architectural ceramic. The diversity of his production is phenomenal, the beauty of his painted decors and geometrical tiles is particularly noticeable.
Roger Capron's brilliantly colored asymmetrical vases, drunken decanters and hand-glazed tile coffee tables have become eminently collectible.
