About

During his time as Artistic Director of Montieres in Amiens, Jean Barol’s work was often characterized by an exploration of techniques such as sgraffito, and barbotine slip as well as enameled cloisonne against iridescent luster glazes. Upon his return to the south of France in 1920, these technical skills begin to appear in works produced at the BACS workshop, notably the application of high-fired enamel cloisonne decoration on metallic luster-glazed surfaces. Barol continued to explore this throughout his career for stunning affects. Here the opaque little enameled sea urchins and carp practically pop right out of the Massier-esque iridescent luster- glazed ocean background. JEAN BAROL (1873-1966) A glaze specialist, Jean Barol trained under Clement Massier in his Golfe Juan studio in southern France. Together with three of his colleagues: Maurice Alexandre; Jean Carle and Francois Sicard, they broke away in 1912 to form their own workshop, BACS, whose name was formed as an acronym by using the first letter of each of their names. In the 15 years that the BACS workshop was in production, Barol took sabbaticals periodically to work at the Faiencerie Picard in Amiens, returning briefly to BACS in 1916 before leaving with Sicard the following year to become the first Artistic Director of Montieres in Amiens under Desire Borck. For the next three years while in Amiens, Barol also taught ceramic techniques to students at the Ecole Des Beaux-Arts. He returned to the BACS studio in the south of France in 1920 where he produced ceramic glazes until the firm closed permanently in 1927. Until his death in 1966, Barol continued his ceramics work in nearby Cannes-La Bocca and in his native Vallauris.
