1960s J.R Cloutier red glazed pitcher w/ wooden handle 6¾"

SKU: 18587

Jean (1930-2015) and Robert Cloutier (1930-2008) were twin brothers and renowned French ceramists, celebrated for their innovative and whimsical approach to ceramics. Educated at the École des Arts Appliqués and the École des Beaux-Arts in the 1940s, they established their workshop in 1955. Their work, which often featured vibrant colors and sculptural forms, aimed to blend art with everyday life, making them key figures in the post-war art movement.

This striking pitcher, designed by the Cloutier brothers, epitomizes their unique style. The vibrant red glaze provides a bold, eye-catching appearance, while the textured surface adds depth. The most distinctive feature is the handle, designed to resemble a wooden screw, showcasing their flair for integrating whimsical elements into functional pieces. This creative detail, along with the contrasting textures, makes the pitcher both a practical item and a piece of art, exemplifying the Cloutiers' mastery in merging functionality with artistic expression.
