Jacques Innocenti is born in Paris in 1926. He studied since 1946 at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, where he graduated in 1948. Here, he met his wife Nydia Ronin. In 1949 the couple married and they moved to Vallauris where Jacques opened in the early 1950s his workshop called "la poterie du Grand Chêne" (the pottery of the great oak). From 1953 to 1957, he participated in exhibitions of the Nerolium in Vallauris. In 1953, he exhibited at le Havre and in 1955 at the Triennale of Milan, at the Salon of Arts Décoratifs - K in Caracas and at the international exhibition of ceramics in Cannes, where he won a silver medal. His sudden disappearance in 1958 gives his work a mythical dimension;
