The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.
I’ve enjoyed immensely going back through my archives during this time staying in. I was surprised to find I had not yet featured the Sant Vicens area in Perpignan, a fifteen-minute walk from where I live.
Last October, despite the rain and a little chill, my family and I enjoyed an excursion to the compound of the Sant Vicens Ceramiques, a former wine estate. The grounds include a ceramic workshop and store, an old wine cellar where ceramic artwork is displayed, farmhouses, and gathering places for artists over many years. On the day we visited, the buildings (except the ceramic store) were closed. Normally, you can take a tour and hear of the history of the place. I look forward to taking a tour when all this is over.
Sant Vicens is “a major place of creation and artistic encounter throughout the 20th century. From Jean Lurçat to Dali, via Picasso, Dufy or Maillol, many artists have passed through Sant Vicens, enriching the history and the exceptional collections of this former wine estate.”
I hope you enjoyed our discoveries. Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe, stay well!
