For over 25 years Picasso produced more than 3,500 original ceramics at the Madoura atelier. Suzanne Ramie's personal works revealed a sculptural perception of ceramics.

    Ammonoid Epsilon by Misha Kahn

    presented by Friedman Benda
    • Misha Kahn

      Ammonoid Epsilon
    • Through a wildly imaginative approach that embraces spontaneity and non-conformity, Kahn allows the illogical to take over his entire process. This piece is part of the Ammonoid series which refers to a group of extinct cephalopods, related to the modern-day Nautilus. Kahn’s take is distinctly two-sided, exposing a bright personality on the face, and another more complex, undulating and vulnerable one is revealed only when one’s viewpoint shifts.
