About Élisabeth Joulia

In the period following World War II, French ceramic artist Elisabeth Joulia joined a group of avant-garde potters working in the village of La Borne. Led by Jean and Jacqueline Lerat, these artists looked beyond the utilitarian to create ceramics that stood alone as works of art. Finding inspiration in the land around La Borne as well as the region’s long history of pottery making, Joulia created organically inspired pieces with raw finishes.

French, 1925-2003, based in La Borne, France
