Ceramic pitcher in the form of an abstract bird or coq, by Roger Capron (1922 - 2006). This piece (1950s) is surprising and inventive with a sensuous muted white glaze and colourful tile-like wings. This work is a quintessential example of collectible Capron and a trademark of his style from this era. A unique piece of Capron's ceramic artwork for true connoisseurs of this celebrated master. There is a visible blemish above the left wing of the bird as a result of a well-executed repair. Good vintage condition commensurate with its age and usage. Signed underside: 'Capron - Vallauris'.
About the Artist: Roger Capron founded the craft-based workshop in Vallauris, France, l'Atelier Callis, where his creations contributed to a veritable renaissance of pottery and ceramics. Capron left behind a considerable body of internationally acclaimed works and is collected worldwide.
