Stanislas Godec ( - )

Born into a family of artist-craftsmen from Pont-Croix, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Cornouaille in Quimper. In 1949, he won a prize for his ceramic chess set. He then entered the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under sculptors Muguet and Navarre. Between 1951 and 1952, he was workshop manager at Muguet in Auteuil, while Navarre introduced him to medals.

This sculptor is credited with two granite calvaries in Beuzec-Cap-Sizun. He also created several sculptures for chapels and churches, as well as numerous restorations of religious monuments.

After a spell at the Henriot earthenware factory, he moved to HB. Here, he produced an amusing chess set, medallions, high-relief plaques depicting Breton legends and costumes, and statuettes of virgins. He stopped working with Quimper earthenware in 1983.

Between 1958 and 1968, he took part in numerous exhibitions in France and abroad (Italy and Spain), often as a medallist.
