Black Ceramic TOTEM, Center Sphere, White Crinkled Top, Tripod Legs, Hand Built

$975

About

This glazed black hand built ceramic modern TOTEM consists of a freeform open top with a middle spherical shape on tripod legs. Part of a series of Modern Totemic works. The dark brown stoneware clay is hand formed in 3 sections which are attached before firing. The rich Black Glaze on the lower forms alternates between satin and gloss and shows the texture of the clay, while the White Glazed top reveals the artist's hand and the brown clay beneath. Several ceramic techniques are used here, slab construction, coiling and pinching and of course, lots of hand shaping. Handmade by Artist Helena Starcevic. And because of the hand-built nature of the process, each one is truly one of a kind. Signed with Artist's signature chop underneath.

About the Maker

Helena Starcevic Ceramics

Helena Starcevic Ceramics produces work that straddles the line between fine and decorative art. Each piece is one of a kind, hand-built entirely by the artist in her New York studio. Taking inspiration from the natural world, Ms. Starcevic's work includes references to the stark beauty of the desert, prehistoric cave paintings, and the human form (within and without). Everything is filtered through Ms. Starcevic’s own singular aesthetic, at once quiet yet strong, meditative, and beautiful. Pieces are made in different clays and finishes, and at different scales. Groupings are available. Helena Starcevic’s ceramic pieces are held in private collections across the US and Europe. She has held numerous residencies including one at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.
