Too bad this guy has been dead and gone since 1910!  Because if he were still around, I’d like to have a good chat with him about how he achieved such beautiful glazes!!

I’m constantly gobsmacked by the potters that historically developed such beautiful glazes, but we are still working to achieve similar glazes today.  Too bad that we can’t pass along such valuable information.  Oh well, if it were easy we would all be doing it, right?!

At any rate, here’s an image showing the genius of Adrien Dalpayrat, the French ceramicist, who has been virtually forgotten until the ’60s.  Seems that financial woes have ended many a ceramicists’ brilliant careers.

According to Jason Jacques Inc.’s webpage, “He was so well known for his oxblood flambé pottery that the term “Dalpayrat red” was coined to designate his distinctive glaze.”

In the meantime, I will plod along trying to emulate these great artists!
