Ceramic bowl by Jacques Pouchain for Atelier Dieulefit, France 1950s
Large flat bowl by Jacques Pouchain (1927 - 2015) for Atelier Dieulefit, France 1950s. Jacques Pouchain was trained as an architect but decided in his twenties to study at the 'Académie de la La Grande Chaumière' art school in Paris. In the 1950s Pouchain went back to Dieulefit, the village where he was born to to learn the potter’s craft at the faiencerie du Poet-Laval. This bowl shows a nice 'nature mort' of a vase, a bottle and a fish. Pouchain often used fishes in his works. Both the color and dessin is giving the bowl an attractive atelier feeling. Signed at the bottom: L' Atelier Dieulefit. In excellent condition.
