In April 2013 we were delighted to announce an exhibition featuring ceramics by leading French potter Jean-Nicolas Gérard.
Widely regarded as the potter’s potter, Gérard makes freely thrown and decorated domestic ware.
Jean-Nicolas was born in Brazzaville (Congo) in 1954. He returned to France in 1961. He started studying ceramics in 1978 and was Jean Biagini’s student at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence. He also trained with Claire Bogino.
His work has now gained international acclaim. He is regularly invited internationally for workshops or residencies and has exhibited in USA, Australia, China and Japan.
In addition to a 64-page catalogue with photographs by Jay Goldmark and essay by David Whiting, we have also produced a film on Jean-Nicolas with footage from his studio in Valensole, Provence.
