Rare and exceptional sandstone from Dalpayrat (only piece known to date )

Of an also exceptional size, probably due to

a collaboration with the sculptor Voisin Delacroix.

The collaboration withVoisin Delacroix was brief (1 year) the

sculptor ending up dying of pleurisy on April 2, 1993

Dalpayrat working on matter and colors, Delacroix on shapes, we complement each other in a rare way, he said.

Among their creations, the zoomorphic, anatomical, and visceral series, from which this piece could belong.

Flared neck, domed body, twin handles with vegetal branches. Very nice dark red, brown, yellow, blue green and turquoise glaze.

Pomegranate signature.
