Polychrome earthenware. Circa 1930. Subject from the gavotte series.

Jim Sévellec created three series of small subjects for the Henriot factory, illustrating a wedding, a pardon and a folk festival called "la gavotte". To complete the set, he created houses, a refreshment stall and a church, all in earthenware, to set these characters in a small village. This idea no doubt came to him as a result of his work on the lively dioramas produced for the Tanguy Tower, showing the bustle of his native Brest before the war.
