Decorative Elongated Ceramic Flower Vase by Jacques Pouchain (circa 1950s)
Decorative elongated ceramic flower vase (c. 1950s) by Jacques Pouchain. This mid-century ceramic flower vase is elegantly glazed in a dusty lavender with perhaps, a seashell motif. The decoration could also be described as resembling a palm tree trunk or other plant growth. It is in any case, a stunning piece and very original. Signed on the underside: 'Atelier Dieulefit'. Very good vintage condition. Upon request a video clip may be provided to add context.
About the Artist: Jacques Pouchain (1925 - 2005) left Paris and gave up his architectural training in the 1950s for the South of France to devote himself to art and his pottery studio at Dieulefit. He produced highly personal work and more commercial pieces as well both revealing a modern approach to pottery. Pouchain's ceramics have an international following and have been sold at several of the major auction houses.
