Twin brothers Jean and Robert Cloutier completed their training at the Meaux Ceramics School and integrated Georges Jouve's workshops then Pol Chambost's one. In 1965, they created their own studio in Paris. Rather successful, they collaborated with manufacturers such as Haviland, the Galerie Lafayette or Air France. Their research leads them to work on wall architecture and interior decoration by innovating claustra walls. In the 1970’s, they moved to Yvonne and then to Languedoc in Marsillargues. The Cloutier brothers contributed to the revival of French ceramics in the 1950s by creating a dreamlike universe of their own in which the anthropomorphic, semi-useful, semi-decorative pieces and sculptures are intense in color, most often monochrome or bi-chromic.
