Firoozeh Neman

Games of Avalon

Sculpture
$ 18,000.00

  • 34 x 34 inches | Original Work

DESCRIPTION

Ceramic | 2021

Each ceramic figure has a unique part to play in Firoozeh Neman’s new series. Deeply inspired by poetry and mythology, Games of Avalon is a hand-crafted chess board and set of game pieces, each handmade by Neman. The board and its pieces represent at once a dance between dark and light and a never ending war of the worlds where we cheer and cherish every choice, every move, and every mistake. Human shapes emerge from clay to take on an innately feminine or masculine form, a character unique to itself in Neman’s own Realm of Avalon. The intuitive sculptor leaves her visible hand on each piece, giving each one a primitive, impressionistic effect while using sometimes surprising glazes—marbled, shimmery, even neon — to complete each figure with a personality and name all its own.
