Pristine Unfurling Pedestal
Created by Jean Elton
The original model for this sculpture was derived from found shapes and fashioned by the artist into a work characterized by flag-like unfurling. The result is a visually light, energetic form. The sculpture is fired first to approximately 1800 degrees F after which the surface treatment is hand-applied, both the inside and outside have been left unglazed and natural. Fired again to 2100 degrees F, the work takes its final, elegant form. The work is supplied with a museum gel-disk to stabilize it without damaging the surface on which it is placed. As with all Jean Elton work, the unique serial number on the bottom is recorded on an attractive certificate of authenticity also supplied.
