French Vintage Ceramic Vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
French mid-century ceramic vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). A serious yet delightful piece created using Blin's trademark misty glaze with lovely decorations of plant life such as leaves, branches and stems. The spherical central portion houses these decorations, each one incised into the body encircling the piece both visually pleasing and tactile at the same time. This is a very original piece in a much sought-after style. In very good overall condition. Enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Signed: 'J. Blin' on the underside. Upon request a video may be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995) 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".
