Roger Capron Multicoloured 'Pyjama' Style Vase (1950s)
A stylised vase (1950s) by ceramicist Roger Capron (Sept 1922 - Nov 2006) who founded the craft-based workshop in Vallauris, France, l'Atelier Callis, where his creations contributed to a veritable renaissance of pottery and ceramics. Capron left behind a considerable body of internationally acclaimed works and is collected worldwide. This ceramic vase (1950s) was discovered in Provence in the S. of France and has multicoloured vertical stripes with a concave shape leading downward to the holding point revealing an oblong hollow, like a keyhole. The piece is in very good condition showing some slight interior discolouration consistent with its age with a minor splinter on the lip. This is classic Capron which evokes the era in which it was created.
