Ceramics and Porcelain ~ DORIS/BUTHAUD FRENCH ART DECO CERAMIC VASE

DORIS/BUTHAUD FRENCH ART DECO CERAMIC VASE

The beautiful ceramic vases that one sometimes sees were actually made by the famed French ceramicist Rene Buthaud, but because of complicated copyright laws, pieces intended for export were signed Doris. They tend to be more modern and abstract than Buthaud's earlier, often pictorial pieces.The use of glazes on this piece is very harmonious, creating interesting texture within a muted palette of grays and cream. 12.5" H x 7" W

 

From Primavera Gallery's collection of ceramics by Rene Buthaud, Doris, and other French Art deco ceramic artists.
