Zebra Stone, Black & White Jesmonite Vase / Vessel by Nic Parnell

$3,158.84

About

This vessel is created by applying multiple coats of Jesmonite (plaster) in a three dimensional landscape of textured surfaces. Each calculated coat of colour is eventually revealed by carving and lathing though the final mass of layers. Once polished and lacquered, the topography of miniature landscapes can be seen in the black and white contour lines. These surface maps directly reflect how these objects were made. The finished work reveals a fluidity that is unknown to the current laws of nature, yet still reflective of them. The result is a geological phenomenon suggestive of a segment taken from a parallel world. This black and white vessel / vase is taken from the larger body of contemporary work titled "Strata" which comprises of wall pieces, furniture and vessels. Parnell is interested in transporting the audience in an experience that instigates wonder, curiosity and objective desire. By harnessing rare relationships between colour and tone, the finished work reveals a geological fluidity that is unknown to the current laws of nature, yet still very much reflective of them. Parnell currently explores the use of classical shapes to carry his wildly imagined rock formations. This vessel in finished in a hand polished high gloss.
