Vintage French Decorative Bowl by Jacques Pouchain for Atelier Dieulefit (circa 1960s)
Mid-century decorative bowl (circa 1960s) by Jacques Pouchain - Atelier Dieulefit. This elegant bowl, elevated by a small circular base, was created in Pouchain's trademark tones and glaze. The bowl's recess is decorated with a stylised flower in simple Picasso-like lines. The glaze, shape and simple but elegant style of the outer surface is suggestive of Asian pottery or more specifically, Japonisme. In good overall condition. Signed: 'Atelier Dieulefit'. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Pouchain (1925-2005) left Paris and gave up his architectural training in the 1950s for the South of France to devote himself to art and his pottery studio at Dieulefit. He produced highly personal work and more commercial pieces as well both revealing a modern approach to pottery.
