Mid-century decorative ceramic bowl (circa 1960s) by Albert Thiry (1932-2009). Small in stature but oversized in charm, a milky-white glazed central sphere at the base of the inner bowl is encircled by a deeply incised flower motif and sunburst of leaves. A small flower and leaf motif is repeated on the lip of the dish making this piece not only visually attractive but very tactile as well. The outer bowl is also in a glaze of milky-white with a constellation of small brown dots like stars in a Provencal sky. In very good overall condition. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request a video will be provided. Signed: 'Thiry' at the underside clay base.

About the Artist: Albert Thiry was born in Nice, France (1932 - 2009). His family moved to Vallauris where he spent most of the school holidays in the potteries; in 1956 he was taken on as an assistant decorator with an opportunity to make his own pieces. In 1961 Albert and his wife Pyot set up their own pottery. Their standard production, in Vallauris clay with added grog to emphasise rusticity resulted in delightful pieces both highly elaborate or utilitarian. The utilitarian pieces which are very recognisable are not signed. (Source: French Pottery of the 50s by Pierre Staudenmeyer).
