Mid-Century Ceramic Decorative Pitcher / Vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
Mid-century ceramic decorative pitcher / vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). Created in Blin's trademark misty glaze, this whimsical vessel is incised with fantastical creatures and stylised human figures. It is in good condition commensurate with age. You may notice what appears to be slight discolouration at the bottom of the handle. This appears to have occurred during production but simply adds interest to an already beautiful piece. Signed on the underside, 'J. Blin'. Upon request a video of the work will be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995) who was an engineer by trade but with a love for the visual arts. Blin has an immediately recognisable style characterised by a more or less misty appearance of the glaze and by decoration deeply marked in the raw clay, a method he used throughout his career. He frequently depicted fanciful birds, primitive animals, stylised figures and whimsical abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin". A comprehensive book of the works of Jacques Blin has recently been released in both French and English: 'Jacques Blin, Ceramiste & Porteur d'Histoires' by Christine Lavenu.
