Charles Voltz (1923-1997)
He moved to Vallauris in 1950, after having been an industrial designer. The pieces we encounter are generally utilitarian ceramics, vases, pitchers but also African masks in shades of green and decorations generally abstract and engraved, in the spirit of Robert Picault and Gustave Reynaud. He died in Amboise in 1997.
