Roland Brice 1911-1989 was an artist who as a pupil of Leger subscribed to his colourful palette and "purist" principles. He set up a ceramic workshop in Biot, a traditional French centre for earthenware and glass, but the difference between his glazes and bright colours and the usual drab functional items produced at Biot was enormous. Leger worked with Brice for five years between 1950-55 and produced limited editions and one off pieces. After Legers death in 1955 Brice carried the same principles forward, and his distinctive pottery is highly recognizable. Leger pieces are highly valuable, but post Leger pieces are still available at reasonable prices such as the dish currently listed for sale.
