Picasso ceramistIt is in 1946, by visiting the annual exposure of the potters of Vallauris, randomly of a meeting with Suzanne and Georges Ramié owners of a factory of Céramique, the workshop Madoura that Picasso, curious about all, carries out its first ceramic tests then, decides to devote himself to this activity which offers new prospects of creation to him: the malleability of the ground and the magic of the cooking to the furnace which record the bright colors of enamel and the brightness of varnishes.
Its practice is not very orthodoxe. Picasso sculptor works in the clay faunas and nymphs, runs the ground as it is done bronze, decorates inlassablement flat and plates with his favorite topics (bullfight, woman, owl, goat…), uses the most unforeseen supports (fragments of pignates, gazelles, material of charging or broken bricks), invents the white pastes which are the not enamelled ceramics decorated with elements in relief. Ceramics is by no means for Picasso a minor art.
During a score of years, it carries out four thousand original works. According to its wish, certain ceramics was manufactured with several specimens and Madoura had exclusiveness in it. By doing this, he wanted that this published ceramics has a daily use as he opened some with André Malraux: “I made plates, one can eat inside”.
LinogravureAnother technique also holds all its attention: the Linogravure, which it practiced with the printer Hidalgo Arnera, and as from 1963 with Aldo and Piero Crommelynck. The first works are carried out for the posters of the bullfights or the ceramic exposures of the city. It quickly makes of it a means of expression to whole share by stressing the colors.
Picasso still presentIn spite of its death in 1973, Picasso remains citizen of honor of the city. It contributed to the revival of the ceramics of Vallauris in the Fifties, which one presents like the golden age of Vallauris.
