Glazed Ceramic Stylised Owl Vase by Jacques Pouchain (circa 1960s)
Glazed ceramic, stylised owl vase (circa 1960s) by Jacques Pouchain (1925 - 2005). This is a whimsical, ceramic sculpted vase in Pouchain's inimitable style. The rounded base is decorated with etched owl's wings and body features topped by a smaller head with inset eyes and prominent owl beak. The lustrous glaze is trademark Pouchain / Dieulefit. What a conversation piece! In good vintage condition. Signed and marked: 'L'Atelier Dieulefit'. Upon request a video of the piece can be provided.
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 the major houses.
