Jacques Pouchain (1927-2015)
Jacques Pouchain studied architecture in Paris. After a stint at the Grande Chaumière studio, he began a career as a painter in 1951, then moved to Dieulefit in the Drôme. In the Coursange earthenware factory in Poet-Laval, he learned ceramics, his talent as a painter enabled him to modernize decorations and renew forms. In 1958, in Dieulefit, he decided to open his own ceramic workshop and produced unique pieces with figurative motifs engraved in the earth and enamelled with brown and black tones.
