Silver Tower
Masanobu Ando

$420.00 USD
  • Introduction

    I am a Silver Tower. I'll be your pillar - no, your tower - of strength.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

     

    Though Masanobu Ando is celebrated for his work in functional ceramics, his beginnings in contemporary sculpture continue to influence his oeuvre. This piece is reminiscent of a skyscraper with its jagged pillar and cut-out windows, and casts an impressive shadow when placed in a window or under a spotlight. The starkness of the sculpture exhibits a reverence for clay as it really is - geologic and unrefined. A distinctive hand-painted glaze makes the piece unmistakably Ando-san's creation. 

     

    Silver Tower was curated by Angélique Chmielewski
