Tommy Zen "Red Jar" Mixed Media Resin Glass Urn (H 93 in. x 10.5  in.Diameter). It was originally purchased for $8,000. Tommy Zen, an artist bridging the past and present, draws inspiration from Neolithic pottery practices, channeling the echoes of ancient craftsmanship into his contemporary creations. His work mirrors the aesthetics of his ancestors, utilizing traditional sienna and umber pigments, just like those found in Hacilar vases or Cilician ceramics of yore. Zen's artistic journey pays homage to a diverse range of ancient civilizations, from Phoenician amphorae to the monumental jars reminiscent of Crete. Each piece reflects the essence of different eras, not just as functional artifacts but as conduits of mystical and cosmic energy, tapping into the subconscious and offering an escape from the mundane. With a lineage rooted in Venetian cabinet making, Zen merges historical techniques with avant-garde artistry. For over two decades, he has honed his craft, blending enamels, traditional glazes, and innovative oxidants to birth resilient, unique pieces. His fusion of ancient methods with contemporary vision yields artwork that transcends time, each meticulously handcrafted piece telling a story of craftsmanship and innovation.   Please consider downloading our free mobile app available on iOS and Android: House of Craven.   Have a similar item to sell?
