Jean de Lespinasse

Gabriel & Guillaume / Jean de Lespinasse

Jean de Lespinasse (1896 – 1979)

Jean de Lespinasse opens his workshop right after the war, at a time when ceramics gain a lot of popularity. Ceramic centers flourish all around France, but the South of France has the most prestigious ones like Madoura, Roger Capron or Jean de Lespinasse.

De Lespinasse favors large pieces, with a lot of structure, and a special technique of glazing which emphasizes contrast between mat and glossy surfaces.
