Ceramic Decorative Vide-Poche by Dominique Pouchain (circa 1990s)
Ceramic decorative vide-poche by Dominique Pouchain (circa 1990s). Eye-opening colours in a glaze of green, blue and orange that invite the eye to feast on this modern design vide-poche. Although it is more contemporary, it is reminiscent of designs from the 1960s with its brush-stroked lip, and abstract blue and orange base. Visually stunning and a designer's dream. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed on the underside: 'D Pouchain'. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
About the artist: French artist Dominique Pouchain was born in 1956, son of well-known ceramicist Jacques Pouchain. Dominique initially created utilitarian pottery but soon after started working on his first animal sculptures. His exhibition at the Atelier des Arts in Paris in 1985 was very fruitful and garnered him the support of three prominent Parisian galleries. In 1989, after the opening of the Galerie in Dieulefit, Pouchain moved from working on functional pieces in favour of sculpture. He has not looked back and is now collected internationally.
