Michel Mathieu grew up in Tulette Where the
sun burns down and ripens the region's famous
Côtes du Rhône grapes workshop in Tulette and
punishes its earth.
With this rugged, hard earth he creates pottery
with shapes of a touching smoothness.
His famous clay cats have been sleeping on
the roofs of sleepy Provençal villages for years
now. You can spot them lounging around,
stretched out in the sun, flopping on the window
ledges of village houses in Tulette, Vaison la Romaine,
Séguret, Sablet, Valréas, Nyons and Beyond...
This site is here to tide you over before you're next able
to drop in on the biggest old tomcat of all, Michel in his
workshop in Tulette. You'll find original jars and
sculptures surrounded by cats in every feline shape
Another cat is
coming to life. And it
won't be long before he's lolling under the
Provençal sun or perhaps even taking it easy up in
Paris like some of his brothers which decorate the
house of Georges Brassens
