Bulgarian artist Vassil Ivanoff (1897-1973) arrived in Paris in 1927 in search of new horizons. For twenty years, he worked as an interior designer, a painter and a photographer. It’s only at the age of fifty that he discovered ceramic art.
Fascinated by the huge possibilities offered by stoneware, the artist moved to La Borne, a famous village of potters in France and rapidly became renowned for his creativity and glorious oxblood glazes.

Ivanoff is nowadays considered as one of the greats of 20th Century art.
