Under the tradename ODYV , Odette Berlot and Yvonne Mussier were producing Art Deco vases and sculptures in their own factory in Vierzon, France in the 1930s . With style and bombast . I love them .

There are basically 3 established ways to receive an informed ceramic education in Germany: 3 years apprenticeship in a workshop/studio environment / 3 years apprenticeship at a so-called Fachschule (vocational school) / 4-5 years academic training at college or university, which usually requires some previous knowledge in the field . Gerhard Küffer has been running his studio in the historic centre of Regensburg for about 30+ years now , seeing an estimated 50+ apprentices and countless interns come and go .
