Mid-Century Ceramic Decorative Bowl by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s)
Mid-century ceramic decorative bowl by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). Created in Blin's trademark misty glaze, this elegant bowl is incised with birds which may have just been discovered in an ancient cave filled with art. Its medium size means it would add an element of interest to the decor in any room in the house. Its shape is reminiscent of the art style referred to as Japonisme. In very good vintage condition commensurate with its age. Unsigned. Undoubtedly Blin's work. Ideal for Jacques Blin collectors and for those who love mid-century French ceramics. Upon request a video of the work will be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995) who was an engineer by trade but with a love for 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 whimsical abstract motifs in his works which are always signed "J. Blin". A comprehensive book of the works of Jacques Blin has recently been released in both French and English: 'Jacques Blin, Ceramiste & Porteur d'Histoires' by Christine Lavenu.
