Robert (1930-2008) and Jean CLOUTIER (1930-2015)
Twin brothers, Jean and Robert Cloutier completed their training at the Meaux Ceramics School by integrating various Parisian workshops, notably that of Georges Jouve (1910-1974) then Pol Chambost (1906-1983). In 1965, they created their own workshop at 53 rue de Reuilly in Paris. They moved into the decoration of tableware by creating the famous Cloutier red characteristic of their production. In 1972, they moved to Yonne in Vinneuf, then to Languedoc in Marsillargues in 1977. They then distributed their production in their gallery in Lunel. The Cloutier brothers contributed to the revival of French ceramics in the 1950s by creating a dreamlike universe of their own.
