Vintage French Ceramic Pitcher by Jacques Blin (circa 1960s)
Vintage French ceramic pitcher by Jacques Blin (circa 1960s). Unique in its style and decoration, its form is zoomorphic with incised decor of geometric shapes. Of course Jacques Blin's trademark misty glaze and light green patina make this piece a treat for the eyes and a serious piece for collectors. It is in fair overall condition with minor chips on the underside, not visible when upright. It is signed: 'J Blin'. Enjoy the photos accompanying the listing. Upon request a video may be provided.
About the Artist: Jacques Blin (1920-1995), 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".
