Ceramic wall mirror in female form by Albert Thiry (circa 1960s). A rare work by Thiry who usually produces rustic yet compelling bowls, dishes, vases and more traditional forms of pottery, this wall mirror is very eccentric for him and therefore very collectible. The glaze is Thiry's signature light cream with brown speckled marks and delicate green shapes throughout. The mirror itself is rounded and sized to offer a passer-by just a quick glimpse of a reflection. It can fit perfectly in that niche in one's home or workspace which is clamouring for an attention-getting conversation piece. Unsigned. If requested, a video clip of this piece may be provided.
About the Artist: Albert Thiry was born in Nice, France (1932 - 2009 ). His family moved to Vallauris where he spent most of the school holidays in the potteries; in 1956 he was taken on as an assistant decorator with an opportunity to make his own pieces. In 1961 Albert and his wife Pyot set up their own pottery. Their standard production, in Vallauris clay with added grog to emphasise rusticity, resulted in delightful pieces both highly elaborate or utilitarian.
