Ceramic Table Lamp by Jacques Blin (c. 1950s)

Sold Out

An alluring cobalt-blue ceramic table lamp (c. 1950s) by Jacques Blin (1920-1995), who gave up a career in engineering for his love of 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 abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin". This lamp is a vivid cobalt colour with whimsical creatures that are wonderfully unsophisticated, simple and even primitive. This is a much sought-after style. Fully functional and in excellent vintage condition with a contemporary lampshade.
