Vintage Ceramic Bowl on Tripod Legs by Jacques Pouchain - Atelier Dieulefit (circa 1960s)
Mid-century ceramic bowl with tripod legs by Jacques Pouchain / Atelier Dieulefit. Pouchain's signature cloudy glaze style is evident but in this piece, which takes the form of a compressed barrel-shaped, there is a vertical line motif throughout. It is complemented by its elegant handles, stylish lid and three rounded feet. Both modern and elegant at the same time and, of course, very collectible. In good overall condition. Maker's mark on underside: 'L'Atelier Dieulefit'. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request a video may be provided.

He produced highly personal work and more commercial pieces as well both revealing a modern approach to pottery.
