Ceramic vase by Mado Jolain (1921-   ), Circa 1950, France, Signed, H 23 cm x L 31 cm x W 16 cm

 Mado Jolain is considered as one of the most important figures of the ceramic scene of the 1950’s, her works are exhibited in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

Over a period of 17 years, she developed just that economy of means which prevents pottery from becoming dated with the passing of time.

She moved on from pottery for domestic use to work in osmosis with the elements – air, light and nature – yet without erasing the dimension of the artifact.
