Naples Palm Vessels
Made from a palm frond that had dropped to the street in Naples, Florida, this vessel is 33 inches long, 9 inches wide and 5 inches tall.
Jean Elton's wall sculpture is another example of using found objects as inspiration for an artistic ceramic work (see also Jean Elton's Naples Palm Vessel). In this case, a segment of a foam packing crate was selected as a model from which a ceramic mold was made. After much hand sanding to create the final form, this and related objects were cast. The work is fired first to approximately 1800 degrees F and then hand - decorated by the artist, using underglazes applied with fine-tipped bottles and finished in a spray booth with a transparent gloss glaze. The object emerges from the final firing which requires approximately 2100 degrees F to take the work to its final form: unique ceramic pieces mounted on a mildly distressed hot rolled steel surface with 1/2 inch folds at the edges for depth. The mounted object is between 1 and 2 inches deep.
Dimensions of 2 ceramic pieces mounted: 27.5 inch by 14.0 inch, between 1 and 2 inches deep
Dimensions of 1 ceramic piece mounted: 15 inches square, between 1 and 2 inches deep
The Jean Elton Pristine Line consists of work whose surface treatment is white and off-white only, for a refined, elegant look.
For dimensions see other galleries.
The Jean Elton Precis Line is based on the idea of "summary" (the simple definition of the word precis). As white is the summary of all colors and black is the absence color, we built the line first on a combination of black and white and in some cases, added touches of accent colors.
