Jean Mayodon Art Deco Large Stoneware Lighted Urn on Bronze Base

About

This magnificent ceramic urn is arguably the greatest work of Mayodon, exhibiting great artistry both as a ceramist and as a painter. It is decorated with a mythological theme with nude males and a rider on a horse on a rich orange and gold ground. It rests on a bronze base by Raymond Subes. In the interior is a light. Jean Mayodon was trained as a painter, but became a ceramist with a painter's mind. He produced figurative decorated pottery after the antique tradition characterized by the practice of stanniferous earthenware with "golden fire." He fitted his own ovens and learned chemistry in order to achieve oxide colored pieces interspersed with a gold pattern giving it a precious aspect. This piece exhibits this rich orange and gold ground characteristic of Mayodon's best work. Some of his work exhibited mythological creatures and nudes, as in this piece. He was appointed Conseiller Artistique at S?`vres in 1934 and was its Artistic Director from 1941-1942. Exhibited Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques, Paris, 1937.
