Hanging Black Spine-Like Sculpture, Ceramic and Horn, Hand Built by H. Starcevic

US$5,800

About

Hanging Rachis, ten elongated rocket shapes in graduating sizes with off-white horn disc spacers, finished with a free hanging curved pod "tail-bone". I have been fascinated by the spinal structure of Humans and other animals and have been working on a several series of "Rachis" which is the Latin term for Spine. Some seem to recline, some to walk or stand. This one hangs in space, each piece is hollow, a wire cord is looped at the top for hanging. Designed to hang away from the wall so the energy around it is more palpable. It could also hang against a wall. The stoneware clay forms are coated in black ink and a wax medium. Designed and executed by Artist Helena Starcevic. From the Artist's private collection. Some photos below show different versions, some longer, one with a white piece.

About the Maker

Helena Starcevic Ceramics

Helena Starcevic Ceramics produces work that straddles the line between fine and decorative art. Each piece is one of a kind, hand-built entirely by the artist in her New York studio. Taking inspiration from the natural world, Ms. Starcevic's work includes references to the stark beauty of the desert, prehistoric cave paintings, and the human form (within and without). Everything is filtered through Ms. Starcevic’s own singular aesthetic, at once quiet yet strong, meditative, and beautiful. Pieces are made in different clays and finishes, and at different scales. Groupings are available. Helena Starcevic’s ceramic pieces are held in private collections across the US and Europe. She has held numerous residencies including one at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.
