8.  idem.  Though it is more then probable that Bernard Leach did visit

    the home of François Guillaume on this occasion, the evidence to

    prove it is no more than hearsay.  One can be certain, however, that

    he did so at a later stage, in l957 (?), when with Muriel Rose of

    the British Council, Leach visited rue des Arènes.  On a small

    sheet of paper, Leach wrote both names, giving as an address that

    of the British Council in London.  This sheet still remains in the

    Guillaume archives.

33.  idem.  Though born in the village in l884, Lucien Chollet had lived

     in Paris since the age of two or three.  An accomplished goldsmith

     and jeweller, a special place had been reserved in the l925

     Exhibition of Decorative Arts for an 'Epée d'Honneur' he had been

     commissioned to make, and a design of his had been patented by Van

     Cleef and Arpels.  He spent vacations in La Borne, mostly working

     in Marius Bernon's pottery.  On 29 July l986, his pieces could

     still be seen in his 'maison secondaire' in La Borne.  The house

     was then in the ownership of his nephew, Robert Chollet, a

     Parisian now deceased, who spent his vacations in La Borne.  One of

     the pieces, a Virgin, had been awarded a Gold Medal in l959 by the

     Société des Artistes Français.  Though it would be tempting to see

     him as having exerted some influence on François Guillaume, it is

     unlikely, given his periodic visits, that such was the case.  In

     any event, there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that they

     had ever met.
