Jacques Blin began making pottery in the late 1940s Blin’s early work made use of modeling techniques, as well as slip casting and stamping, before moving on to wheel throwing. On many of these pieces he painted abstract shapes on a matt white ground.
After 1959, he began etching on dry clay before the first firing, later applying oxides and glaze. With the painter Jean Rustin, Blin developed this extremely innovative technique. These deeply incised and bold etchings chiefly depicted stylized animals, imaginary birds, and scenes from daily life, recalling the pottery of ancient Crete, cave paintings, and graffiti. His iconographic repertoire, drawing on epic themes like creation, should be seen in the context of the myths and ideologies of the postwar period.
He favored colored monochrome backgrounds treated with cloudy effects.
