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, primitive animals, stylised figures and whimsical abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin". This elegant pitcher has a cloudy glaze featuring a three-tired frieze of geometric shapes and everyday items. It's absolutely elegant and charming. The pitcher is in excellent vintage condition and highly collectible.
