Vase with tendrils

Edmond Lachenal French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 556

In 1883, Edmond Lachenal moved to the outskirts of Paris and set up a pottery workshop in Châtillon-sous-Bagneux. In this rural setting, he experimented with glazes, firing techniques, and ceramic bodies such as grès stoneware. Layered glazes bring drama to this relatively simple vase, ornamented with tress-like tendrils at the neck.
