Maurice Dhomme

Maurice Dhomme (1882-1975) is a good example of the fusion of art and decoration in the 1920s.
A talented ceramist, he began his career as a potter in the Oise region of France with a particular interest in earthenware.

However, the works he discovered in Italy quickly modified his initial vision and diverted him towards a more architectural approach to his work. After the interlude of the First World War, when he was mobilized, he was successful: in 1925 he received the Grand Prix of the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts.

Religiously involved, he worked with Maurice Denis on the creation of the Saint Louis de Vincennes church where he created a ceramic ensemble that is now classified as a historical monument.
