Ceramic Gourd-Shaped Lamp by Jacques Blin (Circa 1950s)
Ceramic gourd-shaped lamp by Jacques Blin (1920-1995). This beautifully marbled ochre-coloured French lamp (c. 1950s) is in excellent condition and highly collectible. Blin consistently worked his ceramics in distinct colours - this is a rare example of the marbled ochre without the telltale drawings in sgraffito-etching. Signed on the base: 'J. Blin'. Lamp shade for photography purposes only and not included in purchase.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920 - 1995), 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 often with decoration deeply marked in the raw clay, a method he used throughout his career.
Height of lamp base to metal without shade: 33 cm
Diameter of lamp at base: 16 cm
