Jean de Lespinasse worked out of a studio on the Côte d’Azure, France. After serving in the French resistance, he turned to pottery in the late ’40s. Contemporary of Roger Capron. Appreciated for his skilful enamelling, harmonious colours and a very personal mid century style that works perfectly with today’s interiors.
