Pol Chambost (1906 - 1983) studied at the School of Applied Arts and at an early age chose ceramics as his means of expression. Chambost established a workshop in 1936 and, once past an experimental stage, he began series production with modern equipment, which enabled him to produce up to 70 models in 6 months. Chambost annually exhibited at the Salon des Ateliers d’Art and was among the spearheads for the Union Chamber of Ceramic Art in France.
Pol Chambost’s juxtaposition of colour and uniqueness of forms are characteristics of his designs in the 1950s. He created highly visual pottery, using bold colour to contrast and enhance.
