Blue Zoomorphic Ceramic Mid-Century French Vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
Blue ceramic decorative vase (circa 1950s) by French ceramicist, Jacques Blin. The vase is in a subdued blue in Blin's trademark misty glaze. It is decorated with a frieze of stylised birds and shrubs in the lower body and linear repeating pattern at the top of the neck. An extremely rare zoomorphic piece by Blin whose form is echoed in the incised decoration - so creative in a much sought-after style. In good overall condition. Signed: 'J. Blin' on the underside base. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video may be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995) gave up a career in engineering for his love of 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 abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin".
