Four-Legged Ceramic Pot by Jacques Blin (c. 1950s)
Ceramic pot (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 pot on four legs is graceful, with its classically Jacques Blin cloudy glaze featuring whimsical swans, birds and other indescribable creatures along with plants and flowers. The pot is in perfect condition and an exquisite example of Blin's artistry and technique which is eminently collectible.
