François Lembo

French, 1930 - 2013
A native of Vallauris François Lembo started his pottery career in 1951 in the workshops of Calva and Rossignol.  After his apprenticeship and having completed his national service, he worked for 3 years in his father in law, Marc Roussel's studio, before opening his own studio in Vallauris in 1960.  The work of Roussel, influenced by Byzantine art, inspired Lembo to create mirrors, often decorated in the style of Russian icons.  He produced a number of religious icons decorated with small ceramic beads.  Lembo sold his work at "Terre de Provence" and had considerable success during the 60s and 70s.  He worked as a ceramicist for some 23 years. He passed away in 2013. His son Renaud is an established ceramicist in Vallauris.
