Henri JAVAUX: 1892-1976 The admirer of beauty
As a businessman in the textile industry he arrives in Andenne in 1921. It is immediately love at first sight with the ceramics that are produced here. Under the direction of Edouard Daenen, a producer of stoneware who advised him on a technical level, he begins to model vases which he decorates with animals and plants under the influence of Modern Art and surrealism. His works reflect happiness.
