Myungjin Kim Paradise #43 Vase
This object listing has been archived.
Previously shown at Miami 2021 for $9,500.00.
In the “Paradise” series, MyungJin’s narrative story vessels depict a primal botanical landscape inspired by the ancient plants in her garden. Frequently subject matter among other things, are mated pairs of owls and birds. The owl has been an enduring subject matter appearing intermittently through the years in MJ Kim’s ceramic art.
Each vessel is hand-made with terra cotta clay. Imagery is begun as low relief sculpture around the vessels with painted details in white slip added to complete the image. It is where the complexity of the 2 dimensional and the 3 dimensional come together to complete a form and an image. The vessels are painted and polished with terra sigillata, best known as the surface finish on remarkable pre-Columbian ceramic art from Mexico, Central and South America.
63.5 x 82.5 x 48.3 cm (25.0 x 32.5 x 19.0 in)
