Jules Agard was a local potter in Vallauris in the south of France where the soil was especially rich in minerals. He was also a friend of the Madoura Pottery owners George and Suzanne Ramie. When Picasso first visited the Madoura Pottery in 1946 he painted and glazed large pieces of pottery already thrown by Agard. Soon he began to compose sketches of three-dimensional objects made from familiar pottery forms such as vases, jugs and bowls. These pieces were thrown by Agard to Picasso’s specifications. Thus ordinary, utilitarian objects metamorphosed into purely sculptural shapes becoming art. Agard also created his own designs. Often these pieces paralleled Picasso’s work in their whimsy and earthy imagination.
