Madoura is the name of a famous ceramic workshop in Vallauris. It is an acronym made up of the first syllables of the words house, Douly and Ramié. Douly being the birth name of Suzanne Ramié, its founder and owner. The Madoura workshop was founded in 1938. Rented until 1948, it was bought that year from an old family of potters in the city. The Ramié welcomed Picasso to their workshop after a meeting in 1946 at the Nerolium, the agricultural market in the city of Vallauris where an exhibition “Pottery, flowers, perfumes” was held in which the workshop took part. Following him, Marc Chagall, Victor Brauner and Henri Matisse also came to make ceramics.
