Brutalist Ceramic Pitcher by FRANCIS TRIAY, 1970s

Early 1970s French ceramic carafe by Francis Triay (France, 1927-2013). Handmade clay pottery with textured exterior and bright red glazed interior. Fine and delicate details, a sign of Triay's best work. Acquired from a descendant of the artist. Contrary to most French modernist pottery, which was being made in Vallauris, Francis Triay produced and lived in Provence.
