As this museum is too big to introduce in one post, I decided to move from exhibition to exhibition from now on. Today its an ‚insight‘ the ‚Picasso Ceramics‘, a permanent exhibition at the Es Baluard.
Picasso decided in 1946 to visit the pottery exhibition in Vallauris (Golfe Juan) with his friend Louis Fort, and was introduced to Suzanne and Georges Ramié, the owners of a Madoura Pottery stand, who invited him to their Pottery workshop in Vallauris.
Satisfied with his first three works he made at that time, he returned a year later in order to have his own workshop, and inspired by his portfolio of sketches he began a long and very productive partnership with the Madoura team. They shared their vast experiences, all the material he needed, and tought him all the secrets of ceramics, so Picasso, in his artistic language of great diversity, transformed the role of these essentialy functional objects into works of art, ranging from vases, sculptures, plaques to even a complete dinner service (633 pieces in 24 years).
