Large vase (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 vase is gracefully large with a cloudy glaze showing four figures: two whimsically-topped women transporting amphorae on their heads, alongside a primitive, Picasso-esque bull and pre-historic deer, both equally at home on the wall of some ancient cave-dweller with impeccable taste. The vase is in perfect condition and an exquisite example of Blin's artistry and technique which is eminently collectible.
