Ceramic Vessels by New Orleans artist Jaye Parrish
The figure has always played prominently in the artist’s work. Combining form and function, vessels are coil-built in white earthenware. Interiors are fully glazed while exteriors are for the most part left unglazed with only the bottom portion dipped in a white gloss glaze. The ceramic heads double as stoppers and are sculpted, painted with underglaze, bisque fired, stained and coated with encaustic wax. Displayed alone, they serve as both vessel and sculpture. In groups, they represent a tribe. Each simplistic form is slightly imperfect like the figures they represent.
No two pieces are alike. 18-26″ tall
