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]

Imminent danger seems to be the theme of this exciting blood-red vase. The realistic rendering of the creeping crab simultaneously suggests the work of sixteenth-century French ceramist Bernard Palissy, lively drawings taken from Japanese sketchbooks, and contemporaneous Japanese pottery.
