Pièce unique Signée
In 1957, he met Marie Madeline Jolly and Philippe Madeline, a couple of artists. In their workshop, he creates more than 300 ceramics, draws poem- objects and jewels.
The ceramics shown on this website all belong to the original edition, for which models were created at the “Madeline-Jolly” workshop as Jean Cocteau was alive from the end of 1957 until 1963, year of his death.
…Picasso told me that if i put a ceramic in the kiln, i would be lost. But i have always taken great pleasure in lossing myself…
… pottery has saved my life! It stops me from using ink, which has become too dangerous, since everything we write is systematcally deformed by our readers…
…I visited the uncultivated terraces of an exquisite pottery above Villefranche. Wild lilacs, irises and wallflowers perfume the air. A young baker from Lenain, powdered with plaster, fills the ovens with incombustible flat cakes made by Marie-Madeleine as a feast for the eyes. All this, in the invigorating hilltop air, resembles a lonely farm untouched by the miasmas of modern life…
