About Jean-Marie Pointu

Jean-Marie Pointu was a ceramist working in Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye when Jean Carriés appeared in the village and began to work with local craftsman in the production of his signature Japonist stoneware. Pointu was won over to the Carriés style and was joined in this endeavor by his son, Léon Pointu (1879-1942), in 1918. Father and son created irregularly shaped vessels fired with inventive dripping glazes. [Source: Jason Jacques]
