"Brama Totem" Ltd. Ed. Black Glazed & Gold Leaf, Sculpture by P. Girardin

About

"Brama Totem" is a handmade sculpture, designed and produced by Canadian artist Pascale Girardin in a limited edition, made of glazed high fire stoneware with a cast-iron black finish and 22.5-karat gold leaf (gilding) with an urethane varnish, featuring a powder-coated aluminum structure. DIMENSIONS: Ø 7", H. 45" Pascale Girardin said about "Brama Totem": "The Brama Totems are playful pieces in which I bring together pre-existing forms to create something surprising and intriguing." These objets d’art by Canadian ceramicist Pascale Girardin use totemic motifs to emphasize the universal themes of identity that transcend place, culture and belief systems. For each piece, the artist hand-selects several stand-alone stoneware elements of different shapes, sizes and forms before assembling them into a single textural column. Customized for height in ivory, Egyptian-blue or cast-iron black, each totem is combined with gilded accents to produce a one-of-a-kind composition. PASCALE GIRARDIN is a Canadian ceramic artist whose work ranges from functional tableware to large-scale architectural installations. She has gained international recognition, collaborating with some of the world’s top design firms on projects that include the Shanghai’s Four Seasons Place, New York’s Peninsula Hotel, Paris’ Printemps department store and Dubai’s Al Badia Golf Club, among many others. Originally trained as a painter, she has contributed to the dynamism of contemporary ceramics by exploring and investing spaces with her large-scale architectural installations. Whether suspended in mid-air, grazing a wall or floating in water, her works evoke nature’s omnipresence and organic structure, subtly underlying our fundamental relationship with the world we live in. In the past few years, Pascale has broadened her practice by using new materials such as aluminum, cast resin, polycarbonate and wood. Deriving from her ceramic practice, these works permit her to develop large structures previously unachievable due to the technical limitations of clay. Pascale Girardin also designs and produces dishware for high-end restaurants in North America (J&G Grill, Nobu, le Toqué!) - supporting the notion that the art of living and the life of a work of art are intrinsically linked.
