JOULIA Elisabeth, ceramics, Permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since 1996



(born in 1925, dies in 2003)

“After studies at the School of Fine Arts of Clermont-Ferrand, Elisabeth Joulia attends the class of ceramic at the national school of Fine arts of Bourges with Jean Lerat. She writes to Jacqueline Lerat in 1993, the year following Jean's death : " Jean for me is inseparable of the word " silence ". It left me, to Be, his pupil, thank you. I shall continue to live the teaching in the present. "

Elisabeth Joulia settles down in La Borne in 1949 and buys Armand Bedu's studio where Jean and Jacqueline Lerat had begun.

From 1950 till 2004, she is present in numerous galleries. She often participates with Jean and Jacqueline in the main exhibitions of contemporary ceramic for example in 1973 in Sars-poteries, on 1975 in Saint Rémy de Provence in the Galerie Noëlla Gest, in 1977 and 1982 in the museum of the decorative arts, in 2004 in the Galerie Capazza.

Elisabeth Joulia managed at once a production of utilitarian pieces often bound to tea on one hand and sculptures with a very strong expression on the other hand. In that way, she is in the harmony of the potter-ceramist such as, from France, we imagine it happens in Japan. She is also passionate about the photo, the writing, the painting, the nature and the gardening”.
