Mounted Bowl

This bowl is a masterful combination of metalwork and pottery. The bowl's form sets off the yawning and stretching decorative motifs featured on the mount, which in turn complements the rich earthen tones of the bowl with its perfect patina. Marks: stamped Auguste Delaherche, 3289

About Auguste Delaherche

In 1887, after years of working in various industrial arts firms, Auguste Delaherche acquired a Paris studio and began his career as a ceramist. He concentrated on simple forms with thick drip glazes inspired by Japanese pottery, occasionally employing relief decorations or modeling vases and dishes in vegetal shapes. Delaherche’s continual experimentation with kiln techniques enabled him to produce remarkably subtle gradations of color. By 1904, he had achieved professional maturity with his robust shapes inspired by Oriental, Greek or rustic pottery, thus helping to usher in the era of modern studio pottery.
