French ceramic flower vase (circa 1970s) by Jean-Pierre Gasnier (1947 - ). Created with a beautifully coral-coloured glaze with lighter highlights on an elegantly shaped wide-mouthed vase with a subtle combing effect. Slight in stature but visually stunning and very tactile. In excellent vintage condition. Signed on base: 'JP Gasnier, Port de Bouc'.
About the artist: Also known as 'Pierg', Jean-Pierre Gasnier (1947 - ) had a passion for ceramics from an early age and it is his early work in this field for which he developed his reputation. Skilled in the subtle techniques of the art of enamel, his pieces are considered more creative than decorative. He has received many prestigious prizes and awards such as a gold medal from the International Group of the Arts of Firing Pottery as well as the 1st prize in a competition from the renown pottery town of Port of Bouc near Marseille, France. In 1979 Gasnier won the gold medal at a regional exhibition of work (Var, Bouches-du-Rhône, Corsica) and a selection at the European biennale of sculpture. In 1980 the city of Port de Bouc awarded him their gold medal for achievement. Gasnier has been commissioned several times to make works of art by the French Ministry of Culture. Since those early days, Gasnier's career has evolved from ceramicist to acclaimed sculptor.
