Pair of Vintage French Ceramics by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s) - Small
This diminutive pair of French vintage ceramic pieces have Blin's trademark cloudy blue glaze featuring primeval images of birds, animals and plants - seemingly from an undiscovered cave - etched in and around the small vessels. They are both in good overall condition and would be suitable for display on a shelf, a desk or in the kitchen. Signed on base: 'J. Blin'. Blin's pieces are so collectible now and therefore increasingly difficult to acquire. These pieces are a good introduction. Upon request a video will be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995), 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; he frequently used fanciful birds and animals, stylised figures and whimsical abstract motifs in his works with decoration deeply marked in the raw clay, a method he used throughout his career.
