Burnt-Orange Vase by Jacques Blin with Animal Motifs (c. 1950s)

Sold Out

A stunning and elegant vase by Jacques Blin (1920-1995) who was 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 exceptional vase (c. 1950s) is burnt orange in colour with a sensuous glaze and of the highest quality. It is one of Blin's best pieces that would be at home in a museum...or on display in your home. The figures on the vase are splendidly represented, distinctive, and recall indigenous or aboriginal art from another era. This is a unique find and perfect for collectors of Jacques Blin and mid-century French artisans from Vallauris and beyond.
