Georges Jouve Vase Soleil $138,000>

$138,000

Created by Georges Jouve, this black enameled ceramic vase features a plump form embellished with ears on each side and a yellow glazed sun motif in the center, engraved with the four cardinal points. This piece exemplifies Jouve’s early postwar production, when he preferred simple, secular shapes, minimal ornamentation, and naive patterns. The sun is a recurring theme of the era, signifying renewal following troubled times. 

 

As Renée Moutard-Udry wrote in the artist’s 1965 monograph (authored by Michel Faré), Jouve's nickname was "Apollon," and he signed his pieces with the Alpha mark. Only two copies of this vase are known to exist, including the one reproduced in the book by Jousse Entreprise (pp. 122- 123).

 

Born in Fontenay-sous-Bois, Jouve (1910-1964) is among the most iconic 20th-century French ceramists.
