Alain Fichot: 'Small Gazelle' Jug with Handle
Hand built porcelain with crystalline glaze.
Artist's mark on the base. 2017.
Born in 1952 and living and working in France, Alain Fichot has been a potter for some 40 years, having previously studied sciences.
In the 1970s he switched from wood-fired stoneware to porcelain and crystal glazes and has dedicated the last ten years of his practice to this most challenging of glazes, producing distinctive and beautifully subtle combinations.
His most recent body of work includes heavily textured lidded pots and tea-bowls, although he continues to create the more sculptural shapes for which he is known. His work is a masterful balance of form and technique, exquisitely exectuted.
