relic series

relic series | objects | Jenni Ward ceramic sculpture

The Relic Series pieces have evolved from an In the Field installation to a wall installation for a museum exhibit to a public art project for a restaurant and finally into these versions of them mounted to slate bases. In the larger and more complex versions, the pieces are tied together with sinew, giving them a raw and earthy feel that still plays with the negative spaces of the forms. I love the minimalist feel to these pieces and how the both blend and contrast in a garden setting. Some of these pieces are still available for sale at Sierra Azul Gardens in Watsonville California.
