Inspired by traditional utilitarian vase designs from the south of France, this ceramic vase has been re-engineered to include a complicated circular handle interwoven into the neck of the vase. This solid construction circle handle merges two designs: a classic jug with a traditional vase. This type of ceramic construction is a technical achievement because of the delicate balance elements necessary to allow the vase to stand upright, without leaning. The delicate color palate of blue, brown, and white, gracefully contributes to the overall sense of harmony and balance within the work.
Created in 1955, this turned vase of white earthenware clay with decoration in engobes (blue and brown) engraved by knife and glazed inside is from the edition of 100. This work features the inscribed stamps 'MADOURA PLEIN FEU, D’APRES / PICASSO' along with the handwritten 'EDITION PICASSO' inscription in black on the bottom.
