JEAN ELTON – PICASSOS ZOO
Lois Jean and William Elton Barker are the husband and wife team that combine their middle names to produce the studio name - being convinced that “Jean Elton” is more “artsy” than the “Bill & Lois Pottery Company”
The unique serial number found on the bottom of each Jean Elton piece is reflected on the certificate of authenticity provided.
The original model for this shape was turned on a plaster wheel, from which a casting form was made. The casting form is one piece which enables the final work to be cast without seams, which often cannot be otherwise eradicated from the final form. The resulting shape makes a strong impression, yet is both visually and physically light.
The work is fired first to approximately 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, then hand decorated by the artist using bold brush strokes, multiple patterns and vibrant under-glazes applied with fine-tipped bottles. Both the interior and exterior have a matte finish.
The object emerges from the second firing, which requires approximately 2100 degrees Fahrenheit, in its final form: a lightweight ( approximately 9 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as an elegant vase or as a purely decorative work of ceramic art with vivid colors.
