Title: Bud Vase
Artist: Dominic Falcione
Ohio sculptor Falcione came to his practice through conceptualism, and though his works have settled into functional objectivity —focused on producing art for the interior — they hold a vestige that is exchanged in the language and understanding of the material. The ‘Bud Vase’ naturally assumes a plantlike form and resolve, the surface of the porcelain gently roughened from a process in which the vessel is dipped in hot beeswax, the depth of texture heightened through a selection of delicate stain applications in which the colour appears to have alchemically fused with the clay rather than simply sitting on top.

Title: Bulldog

Title: Bulldog in Black Basalt
Artist: Wedgwood
Bulldog from the celebrated English ceramic firm, modelled by Ernest Light and completed in black basalt with distinctive glass eyes in the early 20th century. Josiah Wedgwood introduced into production a black stoneware body in 1768. The first trials for Wedgwood's new black body had begun by July 1766, even before the move to Etruria. By September 1767 his experiments were at an advanced stage, ready for production, and less than twelve months later black basalt wares were on the market. He called it ‘Black Basaltes'; we know it as black basalt. Made from reddish-brown clay which burned black in firing, this ceramic body was superior in its appearance to the local 'Egyptian Black' wares produced in the area prior to that date. Provenance: Property of the Saint Louis Art Museum, Sold to benefit the acquisition fund. Elephant with tusks restored. Bear possibly a later model.
