Jane Burton
Contemporary Figurative Sculpture Ceramic Green Gold Patina Woman Body 52" Tall

2019

$12,500

About

"Radiant" 52" x 14"x 6.5" is an original, contemporary, tall, figurative sculpture of a woman body, ceramic, green and gold patina by Jane Burton. This one-of-a-kind ceramic piece is well suited for a contemporary/modern interior. When viewed up close, one can appreciate the uniquely layered, vibrant green/gold patina, and metal halo accent. The forms Burton sculpts are reminiscent of the goddess; a shape starting small and rising into the fullness of her power and strength. Her sculptures invite us to explore our relationship to self, our connection to the world around us, and worlds past. Sculpture includes a custom concrete base. Jane Burton’s current body of work is a timeless examination of humankind through the female form. Through her gestural and towering totemic figures, we examine perceptions of who we are as individuals – how we present ourselves, how we appear, our gender socialization, our self-worth – our strength, perseverance, spirituality, and aging. Her figures are public, yet private – strong yet vulnerable. Burton has chosen clay for its primal, fluid, and malleable nature. “I feel a connection in the clay body – its nature – and, intuition takes over. As the layers build upon each other and the pieces grow, they acquire their own spirits and our spirits connect. The exposed layers evoke layers of time, experiences, and growth – the rhythm of life.” I’m intrigued by objects that hold life… the shell of the hermit crab, the cocoon of the butterfly, the human body. Over the layers of time, they hold the story of the life that resides within. The vessels remain as life moves on, leaving their stories behind. Many of Burton’s works are scribed in her hand – personal thoughts and perceptions on who we are and how we become what we are. Trained as a painter, the surfaces into which she writes are organic and complex layers of analogous or complimentary glazes and oxides applied, fired, etched, and re-fired. Her work has found placement in corporate and residential settings worldwide.
