DORIS/BUTHAUD ART DECO CERAMIC VASE
The famed Art Deco ceramicist Rene Buthaud also produced beautiful pieces that are signed Doris. These pieces were intended for export, and due to complicated copy-right restrictions, he could not sign them Buthaud, but the pieces have all of the esthetic hallmarks of their creator.
The Doris pieces, as can be seen here, are abstract rather than pictorial, and make use of interesting glazes, textures and colors. For this vase, Buthaud uses crackled glazes, and the motif changes gradually from geometric to sensuously curved and almost amorphic. The bright turquoise give a lively focal point to the design. 12.5" H x 7" W.Rene Buthaud, France
