Jean Lurçat worked at the Ateliers Sant Vicens, initially with François Miro (1950-1952) Then began a rich collaboration with the workshop manager Gumersind Gomila from 1953 to 1965, making tiles, dishes, pitchers, soup tureens, vases…
His pieces, often two-tone, have as their essential themes his imaginary bestiary or his vision of a humanized nature.
