A comprehensive exploration of the life and works of French ceramicist Adrien Dalpayrat

Adrien Dalpayrat was one of the most highly regarded ceramicists working in France in the late nineteenth century. Dalpayrat's recognition came relatively late in life, at age 45, when he first revealed the distinctive oxblood glazes for which he was best known, along with the variety of stoneware forms he employed — everything from gourds to fantastical marine creatures. Here for the first time, architect Peter Marino shares his collection of Dalpayrat masterpieces, each beautifully reproduced in a luxurious oversized format.
