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 mirois become more and more rare."
"Né à Vallauris, François LEMBO acquiert les bases du travail de la céramique en 1951 dans les ateliers CALVA et ROSSIGNOL. Après l’apprentissage et le service militaire, il travaille trois ans dans l’atelier de Marc ROUSSEL, son beau père, avant de fonder son propre atelier à Vallauris en 1960.
Le travail de ROUSSEL, orienté vers l’art byzantin, lui inspire d’abord la création de miroirs, décorés plus ou moins dans le style oriental. Cette tendance guida François a rapidement s’orienter vers la réalisation d’icônes russes. A partir de photographies, il les retranscrit sur le matériau céramique puis expérimente l’apport de pierres précieuses sur un support décoré à l’or fin. Ce système ne lui donna pas entière satisfaction aussi développa-t-il une technique de production de perles fines et petites boules en céramique irisée, qui brillent autour des auréoles des saints.
Durant ses 23 années de carrière de céramiste, il créa, toujours dans ce style, quantité de miroirs et icônes principalement exposés dans le magasin "Terre de Provence" de M. DUBOIS, et qui eurent énormément de succès dans les années soixante et soixante dix."
