Large Ceramic Vase with French Coq by Jacques Pouchain (c. 1950s)
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. This large ceramic vase (c. 1950s) of stunning violet blue-purple is weighty and reveals one of his trademark birds - in this case a large rooster and then several smaller ones - etched sgraffito-style in a visual tic-tac-toe. The hallmark etching on the vase bottom, Atelier Dieulefit. In excellent vintage condition.
