Biography
Yves Mohy (1928 - 2004) studied architecture at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris, then ceramic at the Art and Craft School in Paris also. Yves Mohy and his wife arrived at La Borne in 1955: the post-war period was difficult for everyone; the isolation and poverty of this village of potters didn't make things any easier. In 1973, he came back to Paris and in 1975 he became a ceramic teacher at the Beaux-Arts School of Bourges. He settled in the Lot in 1977, in Cahors and in 1981 he left for the Lot-et-Garonne. The same year, he was named teacher at the Beaux-Arts School of Limoges. In 1993, Yves Mohy left for L'Hérault.
