Ceramique 1900

Adrienne PICARD (1890-1963) - France

She left the school of Fine Arts in Lyon in 1913 to enter the workshop of the glass master NICOD. In 1920, she settled in Paris where she drew sketches for stained glass windows in the workshop of Maurice DENIS, then in 1921 she completed her training as a ceramist at the National Manufacture in Sèvres. In 1922 she went back to Lyon to take over the management of her father’s ceramics workshop, Henri PICARD. Until 1951 she made big stoneware vases mainly meant to urbanism, large fountains, medallions, decorative plates and panels, and pieces intended for garden art. While the production of architectural pieces semms to have been relatively "standard", one can notice in her vases a genuine personal touch which would undoubtedly make her to-day still famous, had those vases not been so few.
