Jean Derval bird bowl

A rare bowl with bird design by Jean Derval (1925 - 2010) signed with angular 3 leaf motif of the pottery Le Mûrier

Jean Derval first receives an artistic education as a graphic designer and poster artist at the School of Applied Arts in rue Dupetit - Thouars in Paris. His vocation for ceramics came to him by chance by creating stoneware services for the goldsmith Christofle. In 1945 , during his stay in Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye, he learned the trade of ceramist in the workshop Maubrou-Pigaglio. In this workshop, with Camille Gendras, turner at Pigaglio, he learns about turning and other ceramic techniques. He then stayed at La Borne, where he met Paul Beyer. In 1947 Jean Derval joined his comrades Robert Picault and Roger Capron in Vallauris where they created a pottery workshop the previous year. The elegant world of amateurs and artists is found at this time on the French Riviera around Picasso. Jean Derval entered the famous Madoura workshop in 1949, where he worked with the Andalusian master for two years.

Gustave Reynaud (1915-1972) founded the pottery Le Mûrier (Mulberry Tree) in Vallauris in 1955 and produced crockery designed by his brother-in-law Jean Derval as well as vases, wall plaques and anthropomorphic jugs"
