Georges Jouve received his first training at the Ecole Boulle, from which he left in 1930 to immerse himself in the Parisian atmosphere of the Academies Julian and La Grande Chaumière, becoming a theater decorator. During the German occupation, he escaped from Germany and took refuge in Nyons in the Drôme, where he discovered the art of glazed earthenware. In Paris in 1945, he settled in rue de la Tombe-Issoire, before leaving in 1954 to settle in Aix-en-Provence. His work is essentially in heavy earthenware, with strong colors and a very stylized figurative appearance. Having met the Pierlots, having stayed with them in Ratilly, we know of some stoneware strongly inspired by Picasso. He died in 1964.
