Ask a Question

Mid-century ceramic vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). A delightful piece displaying Blin's trademark misty glaze with subtle hue on the exterior and a light blue glaze on the interior of the surprisingly elegant milk jug shape. Stylised steer are incised into the surface in a naive yet elegant style, like cave drawings from prehistoric times. A series of dark dots surround the piece just at the lip. The decor is attributed to a long term collaboration with the artist, Jean Rustin (1928-2013). In good overall condition. Signed: 'J. Blin' on the underside. Upon request, a video may be provided. 

About the ArtistJacques Blin (1920-1995), 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".
