For many years Roger Capron ceramics have been highly sought after in France and America for their bright colours and unusual forms. Capron from the early period is handbuilt and often unique, especially the Callis pieces which were made in conjunction with Robert Picault and Jean Derval. As the Capron business grew, moulded shapes were the dominant production, still decorated by hand, by a large workshop. Early 50s pieces can be found that are probably painted by Capron himself. Later, Capron moved back into handbuilt unique Raku pieces usually based on animal or human forms. Like Picasso, Caprons imagery is heavily redolent of the sunny south of France with bulls, rascasse fish and le soleil in many forms making appearances. Capron is still relatively undervalued though rarer and more sculptural pieces are into four figures on occasion. We have a large inventory of Capron - please let us know if you are looking for anything in particular or are wanting to build or add to an existing collection.
