Jean de LESPINASSE (1896-1979)
Resistant on the Coast d'Azur during the Second World War, Jean de Lespinasse created SOCFRA with his wife, which produced ceramics from the end of the 1940s in Nice. Their path will then cross that of Roger Capron and his wife Jacotte, the Madoura workshops, Robert Picault or Georges Tardieu. He has, with his wife, shops in Saint-Paul de Vence, Sainte Maxime and Vallauris. All the pieces come from his workshop in Nice, which ceased its activity on his death in 1979. He signed "Jdl". The pieces signed by the Jean de Lespinasse workshop are generally large, nervous and very structured. Above all, we note a great work in the enamel, between the mats and the glosses, which demonstrates a great mastery of the art of ceramics.
