Roger Capron Wall Panels +

I am a big fan of Roger Capron's (1922-2006) work, so whenever I come across any of his pieces while "auction mining," I grab them to share. Most of these pieces were still available at the time of this post.

Impressed soleil wall tile plaque. 15.6" x 15.6". Chris Broc, sold- but many other great pieces available.

I posted about this piece previously, but I like it so much that I had to include it. This rare glazed ceramic wall sculpture by Roger Capron depicting a sun, was inspired by the collaborative work he created with Jean Derval for the Hôtel Byblos, Saint Tropez. It is available at Guéridon for $42K at the time of this post.

Thanks Laura! I am glad you liked them. It is quite easy to do with Capron, he was so talented.

I never thought of painting cinder blocks to make them look like ceramic tiles. Great idea!
