The vertical ribs of this fantastic gourd form vase add a rich texture, while providing avenues for the shedding and pooling of the superb sang de boeuf glaze. The swelling form tapers at neck, then flares out into a distinctive tri-corner shaped mouth.

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]
