Although Dalpayrat is best known for his vibrant copper red glazes, he also created striking blue glazes using the very same copper oxides, fired in an oxygen-rich kiln atmosphere. This footed coupe, unabashedly Japanese in style, belongs to a series that incorporate the shape of bamboo into their forms. Similar Japanese vessels can be found in Siegfried Bing’s seminal journal Le Japon Artistique, 1888-99, among other sources. Throughout the 1890s, ceramists like Dalpayrat would draw freely from Far Eastern exemplars but invariably transform them through innovative glazing. Marks: stamped with Dalpayrat grenade

About Pierre Adrien Dalpayrat

Adrien Dalpayrat began his career as a faïence painter, working at six manufactories between 1867 and 1888 before settling near Paris in 1889. There he devoted himself to stoneware, a material then held in high esteem by French art potters. Working alone and with collaborators, Dalpayrat produced a vast range of shapes and decorations. He was so well known for his oxblood flambé pottery that the term "Dalpayrat red" was coined to designate his distinctive glaze. Perfected in 1892, it is dappled or veined with greens, blues and yellows, and appears on pieces in the form of gourds, fruits, and shapes derived from Japanese bottles. [Source: Jason Jacques]
