Ceramic Bowl for Atelier Madoura
2.75”H x 6.5”W x 3.5”D
In 1938, Suzanne Ramie moved to Vallauris with her husband Georges Ramie. Together, they founded the pottery studio called Atelier Madoura. Madoura came to fame after 1948, when Suzanne and Georges allowed Picasso to share their studio and produce pottery there. The work of Suzanne Ramie is significant not only for its innovative, sculptural form but for the fact that she was able to hold her own as a female alongside one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. The slightly cinched mouth of this simple ceramic bowl exhibits her organic, unconventional style of pottery. The Atelier Madoura imprint is faintly visible bottom side of the bowl.
