Mid-Century Ceramic Vase by Jacques Pouchain - Atelier Dieulefit (circa 1960s)
Mid-century ceramic vase by Jacques Pouchain - Atelier Dieulefit (circa 1960s). Classically-shaped, elongated vase in Pouchain's signature cloudy glaze with an elegant matt white base and subtle blue swirls from top to bottom. A contemporary motif with lines and geometric shapes enhances the bottom of the piece. Stylish and very collectible. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. The bottom lip around the base has a very small but characterful chip which does not affect the overall impression of the work. Maker's mark: 'L'Atelier Dieulefit'. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Pouchain (1925 - 2015) 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 ceramics have an international following and have been sold at several of the major auction houses.
