CAPRON Exhibition

Beautiful summer ride in Valbonne, where the city sets an urban walk around the sculptures created, from 1982, by R. Capron, world-renowned French ceramist.
Capron charged the artist Rheinhold HARSCH to recreate his artworks on large-scale (3 times the original ceramic model) molded in concrete and charged his wife Jacotte for their coloring. The walk brought us to the ADA Loumani gallery, to meet an extraordinary glass maker who shared with us his sources of inspiration to create beautiful dreamy vases.
We have especially admired a vase in yellow and sepia tones inspired by Mondrian, the chair inspired by Picasso and Fernand Léger in a beautiful cubist synthesis.
