Ceramic Pitcher by Jacques Blin (c. 1950s)
Ceramic pitcher (c. 1950s) by Jacques Blin (1920 - 1995), an engineer by trade but with a love for the visual arts and an immediately recognisable style. A way of working 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 used fanciful birds, primeval animals, stylised figures and whimsical abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin". This elegant pitcher has a cloudy glaze featuring primeval images of horned beasts - seemingly from an undiscovered cave - etched at the base of the vessel. This pitcher with handle is highly collectible and in excellent vintage condition.
