Exhibition " L'encre & l'Argile"
The Museum of History and Ceramics Biotoises is pleased to present in parallel the ceramic work of the workshop Buffile Aix en Provence and the work of screen printing and painting on fabrics of the workshop of Pierre and Rodha Arnoux de Biot.
The Buffile workshop in Aix en Provence presents a work on three generations of a family passionate about clay combining tradition and modernity. Their creations are all in purity and simplicity, inspired sometimes by the marine world and sometimes by the graphics of silk screen prints; sometimes multicolored, sometimes black and white but always timeless and clean.
They marry wonderfully with the creations of fabrics of the workshop Biotois of Pierre and Rhoda Arnoux realized from years 60 to 90.
Arrived in Biot in the 60s, Pierre and Rhoda Arnoux opened a silk screen and fabric painting workshop that counted a lot in the world of fashion and decoration of that time.
