Matte Brown Ceramic TOTEM with Tiny Crescent Top on Soft Rectangle & Oval Forms

$975

About

One in a new series of Modern TOTEMS consisting of soft round or rectangular forms on small conical feet. The shapes begin as a solid piece. They are then hollowed out, stacked and the feet attached. The top of this one is a very small crescent shape, like a crown or maybe a transmitter. After the parts are attached, a brown/black clay slip was painted on and the piece was fired twice. This slip creates a matte surface with tiny silver specks and dark brown undertones, catching light and creating depth. Strong and majestic on its own, wonderful as an installation with several other sculptures. Completely hand built by artist Helena Starcevic. And because of the hand built nature and the process, each one is completely unique, 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.
