Paris, 1848 – Atuana, 1903
Circa 1886-1887
Partially painted and enalled stoneware, incised and modelled decoration
13,3 x 15,5 x 11,5 cm

Gauguin met the ceramicist Chaplet in 1886. He worked with him to decorate several wheel-produced ceramics, at the same time as making hand-modelled pieces by himself.

They were often vases and pots with one or two holes and several handles, often resembling pre-Columbian pottery. The partially exposed stoneware is decorated with paint or enamel and engraved with lines. This decorative technique is reminiscent of the Cloisonnism that Gauguin practised during the same period in his paintings.
Between 1886 and 1895, Gauguin created a hundred of so vases, pots and jugs, mostly produced in Paris when he returned from his travels. There are only about sixty left.
