Mid-Century French Ceramic Pitcher / Vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
Vintage blue ceramic pitcher / vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). This elegant ceramic pitcher has Blin's trademark cloudy blue glaze featuring a blackened, incised linear band with circles supported visually with vertical lines. Beneath the mouth and at the top of the handle is a dark, crosshatch motif around the piece. This work with its angular handle is highly collectible and in very good overall condition. The underside base showing some wear. Signed on base: 'J. Blin'. Upon request a video may be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995), 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; he frequently used fanciful birds and animals, stylised figures and whimsical abstract motifs in his works with decoration deeply marked in the raw clay, a method he used throughout his career.
