Note: In July 1946 Picasso was living in the South of France and decided to visit the annual potters exhibition in the town of Vallauris. At the Madoura vPottery workshop he was welcomed by Suzanne and Georges Ramie who provided him with fresh clay and a space at their workshop. He made 2 small ceramics. A year later he returned to the workshop to find his pieces nicely fires and looking good! Inspired he set to work cresting more. Picasso continued to make ceramics until 1971, two years before he died. Besides the original unique works there were over 600 edited pieces made - a considerable part of his total editioned output. They are all whimsical and jolly - made with both an artistic and humorous input.
