Please look at my other Francois Lembo pieces:
François Lembo started ceramics in 1951 in vallauris. Marc Roussel, influenced by Byzantine art, inspired Lembo in his creations. After 23 years of activity, Lembo died in 2013. His work nowadays is more and more appreciated and his mirrors become more and more rare."
"Born in Vallauris, François LEMBO acquired the basics of working with ceramics in 1951 in the CALVA and ROSSIGNOL workshops. After apprenticeship and military service, he worked for three years in the workshop of Marc ROUSSEL, his stepfather, before to found his own workshop in Vallauris in 1960.
ROUSSEL’s work, oriented towards Byzantine art, first inspired him to create mirrors, more or less decorated in the oriental style. This trend guided François quickly to move towards the realization of Russian icons. From photographs, he transcribed them onto the ceramic material and then experimented with adding precious stones to a support decorated with fine gold. This system did not give him complete satisfaction, so he developed a technique for producing fine pearls and small iridescent ceramic balls, which shine around the halos of the saints.
During his 23 years of career as a ceramist, he created, always in this style, quantity of mirrors and icons mainly exposed in the store "Terre de Provence" of M. DUBOIS, and which were enormously successful in the sixties and seventies . "
