This rare and important hand-built and carved stoneware vase designed by Georges Hoentschel was executed by Emile Grittel. The organic body bears an abstract foliate design with stem-like protrusions around the lip and a squat circular foot. Glazed in deep green, slate gray, and aubergine-brown, with brilliant gold highlights, this vase represents a collaborative effort by two preeminent followers of sculptor/ceramist Jean Carries. It is a superb example of organically sculpted ceramics from the Carries School (L'Ecole de Carries). Made in Montriveau, Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye, Nievre prefecture, France. Marks: impressed Hoentschel's mark
