About

"Adorned" 81" x 28" x16" is an original, tall, oversized, abstract figure, ceramic sculpture of a woman body by Jane Burton, featuring a larger-than-life goddess, draped in oxidized copper beads. It incorporates the artist's signature expressive script, layered on a soft blue, monochromatic patina with green & shimmery brown accents. As with many of Jane Burton's pieces, this sculpture draws inspiration from the ancient female goddess form, with a modern influence and contemporary style. Unlike solid bronze, these sculptures are designed & put together by interconnecting sections. Adorned comprises three main areas for the body, with a steel pole running through the middle and screwing into the inside bottom of the solid steel base. We will include detailed assembly/installation instructions with the shipment. About the artist : 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, 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 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 have 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 artwork has found placement in corporate and residential settings worldwide.
