Jean de LESPINASSE (1896- 1979)
Resistant on the Côte d'Azur during the Second World War, Jean de Lespinasse creates with his wife SOCFRA, 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 and his wife have shops in Saint-Paul de Vence, Sainte Maxime and Vallauris. All the pieces come from his workshop in Nice which ceased its activity upon 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, there is a great deal of work in enamel, between matt and shiny, which demonstrates a great mastery of the art of ceramics.
