This bowl reveals two key traits of Dalpayrat's work: sculptural vigor and experimental glazes. The panthers appear to climb around the bowl, poised and ready to pounce, and the glaze is an example of the famous "Dalpayrat red," a distinctive copper-red glaze mottled with streaks of blue, green, and yellow.
