Considered a minor artist in his field and barely collected outside of France and Belgium, Edgard Aubry (1880-1943) was born in Chatelet, Belgium but worked in Bouffioulx where there was a community of talented potters especially in earthenware & stoneware (gres). His shapes were fairly simple and range from sinuous at nouveau to geometric art deco, but his glazes were very complex and highly decorative. There is great skill and sensitive handling of these glazes raising the vessels from being merely functional to having artistic merit. Probably deserving to be better know, his work can still be purchased very reasonably compared to some of the bigger names from this period. A great pot of c1920-30 has just been listed on the site with wonderful glazes in whites, greens and browns.
