Valentin worked at the Lunéville-Saint-Clément earthenware factory as a ceramic engineer and moved to Vallauris in 1950. Valentin invited artists and creators to the studio, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and even Jean Cocteau, who in 1960 appointed himself president of the Club des Archangels. Gilbert Valentin's signature will often refer to the name of the Archangels workshop. With a predilection for sturdy pieces, the artist renewed the traditional forms: pitchers without handles and gripped by the neck as well as zoomorphic forms. There were also large ceramic panels and engraved dishes, like the one included in this table.
The piece ships from New York, NY, directly from the seller. Shipping and tax (except eligible FL tax) will be charged separately.
