Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat (Designer)
Here an exquisite naturalism has been overlaid upon a traditional far eastern lobed vase form. Every ripple and indentation of the gourd has been lovingly depicted, transforming a traditionally abstracted Silhouette into an almost living thing, knotty with imperfections. The glaze’s variegated color palette heightens the blurring of realistic and conventionalized modes of representation, inviting the viewer to wonder whether this remarkable object is a creation of nature or the handiwork of man. Mark: Painted Dalpayrat.
