About the Artists: La Roue opened in 1962 and was run by Alexandre and Betty Fadas. La Roue was a studio which sold ceramics in the town of Vallauris in the South of France. Its wares were made by various potters and artisans in the area. Amongst those potters whose work was sold by La Roue were well known master ceramicists, Robert Picault and Georges Pelletier. There were a number of other contributors, many of whom sold work unsigned by themselves but under the La Roue umbrella. La Roue had a reputation for making the highest quality and most original ceramics in its day.
