Ceramic Vase ‘Primavera’ by Leah Jensen

$7,800

About

This wonderful piece combines the contemporary modern with the Italian Renaissance. Based on the 15th century painting, ‘Primavera’ by Sandro Botticelli, this black stoneware vessel has a carved, faceted exterior. A true work of art, more a piece of sculpture than pottery. Leah Jensen is a ceramicist who has pioneered a distinctive technique of carving geometric patterns into clay. Leah’s research examines European painting between the 14th-16th centuries, depicting tales of sorrow, tragedy and beauty. Images of the paintings are applied to the unfired clay surface; pins are then used to map out significant points unearthing a hidden geometric structure within the painting. The points left behind dictate where the patterns will be carved, a process devised to allow Leah to focus on the quality of the carving, creating a greater technical Challenge. This ‘Primavera’ vase took 101 hours to complete. Signed and date 2015 with a burned wood plaque on the bottom. Primavera ("Spring"), is a large panel painting in tempera by the Italian Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli made in the late 1470s or early 1480s.
