Roger Capron Conical White Ceramic French Vases, 1960

Pair of matte white ceramic vases, with a conical form representing two female figures.

We can clearly see the head, bust, and two arms with openings that hold flowers. The lower part, the skirt, is decorated with colorful yellow, red, blue, white, and black stripes.

This colorful vertical stripe motif is typical of the treatment, called pajama-style, that the artist Roger Capron favored throughout the 1960s.

Under the base, it is signed Capron Vallauris T.

Roger Capron (1922-2006) was a prominent French ceramist.

In 1946, he settled in the south of France where he opened a ceramic studio with his partner Roger Picault. Their efforts led to the rebirth of Vallauris ceramics, which is, to this day, an emblem of French quality craftsmanship recognized worldwide.
