Blue Vase by Jacques Blin (c. 1950s)
A small blue ceramic vase with handle by Jacques 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". This diminutive vase (c. 1950s) reveals a frieze of primitive birds - almost amphibian - against a backdrop of dreamy, lapis lazuli blue - unpretentious yet elegant at the same time - and always a wonderful addition to your collection of mid-century French ceramicists (or just a beautiful object for your home). Very Good vintage condition.
