Glazed Ceramic Stylised Bird Vase by Jacques Pouchain (circa 1960s)
Glazed ceramic, stylised bird vase (circa 1960s) by Jacques Pouchain (1925 - 2005). This is a tall, sculpted, ceramic vase in Pouchain's inimitable style. The rounded base is decorated with circular, ascending lines and a drip glaze which emanates from the virtual wings. The wings are visual only, simply formed by asymmetric openings in the bulbous body of the bird. The conical tail, original and fantastical. What a conversation piece! In excellent vintage condition. Signed and marked: 'L'Atelier Dieulefit'.
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 works are collected internationally and have been auctioned by several of the major houses.
