    About The Work

    This limited edition ceramic work by Richard Wilson is characteristic of his iconic, architecturally-inspired style. Says the artist of this piece, “A still life is a work of art that predominantly depicts inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural or man-made, and in my case, a household jug. However, this jug sculpture contains a narrative, which involves an unknown time duration, through a shift in its position. This inadvertently turns the sculpture into a double paradox in that it is a still life subject, yet describes a moment of time through motion, and the work is forever trapped in the act of moving. The sculpture is unbounded by gravity allowing it to sit in a number of chosen positions and is produced by pouring slip into a mold and then firing the form in a kiln.”
