About this item

This beautiful and undulating work of 1960s contemporary design is by ceramics studio FPP (Faiences et Poteries Provençales) of Vallauris, France. The studio was a collaboration between two ceramists Jean Rossignol and Jean Calvas-Blanchon.

Artistic ceramics began to emerge from Vallauris from the end of the 19th century and was elevated further by the arrival of Picasso from 1948. This form of this particular piece is inspired by contemporary, often Cubist designs from Picasso around this time. From the asymmetrically positioned handles to the softly exaggerated curves, this piece shows off a multitude of sharp silhouettes which are only accentuated by the free-flowing semi-matte Tan glaze.

CONDITION
Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs. There is mild wear in the form of movement marks on the underside of the base that is commensurable with age. Please see photographs as they form part of the condition report. The underside of the vase bears the inscription 'FPP, Vallauris, France, N15'
