Vintage French ceramic pitcher / vase by Jacques Blin (circa 1950s). This elegant piece has Blin's trademark cloudy glaze and decoration featuring whimsical elephants and plants. The pitcher is visually divided in two by an irregular line encircling the piece. The upper portion is the sky above. The earth and its layers are divided by another line encircling the bottom under the feet of the animals. Near the lip are flourish decorations perhaps representing the heavens. It's absolutely elegant, charming and highly collectible. The pitcher is in good overall condition and the signature is incised on the underside. Upon request a video may be provided.

About the ArtistJacques 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".
