Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat
Asymmetrical Vase

ca 1905

About

Much fuss is made about Dalpayrat’s signature red, but what many have not realized is that “Dalpayrat Red” refers not simply to a vivid red color glaze but just as often to a nuanced appearance of color resulting from the artist’s technical expertise navigating a complex play of minerals and various firing temperatures. Mossy greens, amber and chestnut tones dance together over Dalpayrat’s blood red base. The result is just as surprisingly modern as the geometric planes forming this asymmetrical vase. PIERRE-ADRIEN DALPAYRAT (1844-1910) After working nearly half his life as an itinerant faience painter and directing production for commercial porcelain manufacturers, Dalpayrat’s eyes were finally opened to reveal his true calling. Ernest Chaplet had just won the gold medal at l’Exposition Universelle for his revolutionary sang-de-boeuf glazed stoneware. That same year, sparked by Chaplet’s revelatory creations, Dalpayrat moved to the hub of ceramic activity just southwest of Paris in Bourg-la-Reine to began extensive research into glazes and to begin producing stoneware. Featuring what has since come to be known as “Dalpayrat Red,” he exploded on the Parisian art scene in 1892 with the first of many shows at the prominent Galerie Georges Petit. One of the most critically acclaimed ceramists of his time, Dalpayrat was made Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur in 1900.
