Small Dark Silver-Gray Hollow Rectangular Ring Ceramic Sculpture on 3 Legs

$500

About

A small hand built rectangular ring ceramic sculpture on 3 legs, one in an ongoing series of Primitive Modern TOTEMS. This study, by artist Helena Starcevic is an investigation into the connection between our modern sensibilities and the essence of our Primitive past. The texture is hand-formed by scrapping and modeling with various hand tools, then the piece is fired twice. The dark clay body shows its iron red color through the texture under the dark silver-gray glaze. With three knobby feet, this piece might reference a cartoon character or a modern appliance, yet holds the mystery of Primitive time. Animated and playful, it appears able to walk off the mantel! The Modern TOTEMS come in various sizes, glazes, and surface treatments. Each one is empowered to stand alone on its own, a conversation piece, a sentinel. When grouped in multiples, they become an installation, a strong statement. See photos for samples. Signed with Artist's chop.

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.
