Vallauris (South of France) - Page 12 Empty Robert Picault

Post by dantheman on June 28th 2015, 3:37 pm



Robert Picault

Robert Picault was born in 1919 and after studying ceramics at the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Paris moved, at the end of World War Two, to Vallauris where, with Roger Capron, he founded the Atelier Callis in 1946. Two years later he set up his own pottery in the Chemin du Fournas.

He was a friend, colleague and next-door-neighbour to Pablo Picasso, and the two learnt from each other aspects of the other's specialities. Picault was also an accomplished cinematographer and photographer, and made a series of four short films with Picasso and leading show-business personalities of the fifties.

He used copper oxide and iron oxide in his glazes, and the bulk of his work is characterised by green and brown motifs on a white background.

Picault died in 2000.

Gustave Reynaud


Gustave Reynaud (1915-1972) founded the pottery Le Mûrier (Mulberry Tree) in Vallauris in 1955 and produced crockery designed by his brother-in-law Jean Derval as well as vases, wall plaques and anthropomorphic jugs.  He also worked with the potter JF Descombes and decorator Michel Barbier. Olivier Roy worked at the studio for 18 months.  After Reynaud's death, his wife ran the pottery until 1984.

Vallauris (South of France) - Page 12 Empty Le Vaucour table lamps

Post by slopingsteve on January 28th 2017, 12:01 pm

Have we got a thread for le Vaucour?
Vallauris (South of France) - Page 12 Sam_6810

Boat shape no 434
Goose no 97

It is a while since I posted my Dali-esque photo of my swan lamp (on a mirror table) reflecting a shy baby elephant. I have had the boat shape base for a long time but I have only just found the time to fit the shade. It is an original shade but not, I think, from this particular boat shape. I would have preferred a slightly longer and taller shade but they are so hard to find these days that I am happy to make do with this one for now.

PS Tenpot: Do you know if there is any literature specifically covering Le Vaucour either as a stand-alone or as part of another publication?

PPS Rita: Having just reviewed the Vallauris thread, I think we must be twins separated at birth......Well, stranger things have happened, just look at the USA

Thanks for the reply. I have got to say that not everyone holds his work in such high esteem as I do; my wife, for example. The little goose/swan has taken nearly ten years to grow on her, but now she says she quite likes it. That is why I thought I might be able to "introduce" the boat shape. I am hoping that, by the time she finally accepts the boat, Le Vaucour's star will be in the ascendancy having been on the Antiques Roadshow or somesuch.

I perhaps ought to clarify that the table that the lamps are standing on is a fold-out side table/coffee table and not a fold out dinner table, lest you are led to assume that the lamps are about three feet tall (and weigh 25kg each). It's a nice little table, quite arts-and-craftsy, and I'm very fond of it.

I own these two vases, both marked with Vallauris, but from different potteres. Anybody know who made these? The "Vallauris" on the first is very hard to read on the photo, but you can read it when you hold the vase against light.

There are a lot of examples of Vallauris on this thread, and I think some links to potters marks. All I can suggest is looking through it for similar examples

I like Vallauris and if I see it at the boot sale I tend to buy it providing the seller doesn't know what it is and has it priced as "Gaudy old tat" or somesuchlike.
The small ramekin like pots are tiny copies of the large Marmites that crop up, so might be Marmitettes ( good name for a band!). Wonderfully simple, with the terracotta body and terracotta glaze, but feel old and sophisticated somehow, even though they are not. Marked AEGITNA, which I haven't researched as yet.
Great for olives and small nibbles at a party, I suppose, even though I would be on tenterhooks.......
