Aggie Zed Contemporary Metal and Ceramic Figural Sculpture of a Horse
Aggie Zed Contemporary Metal and Ceramic Figural Sculpture of a Horse made with soldered steel, copper and clay scraps, the head, neck and hoofs hand-built ceramic, with enamel decoration, the main section of the body made up of improvised metal scraps of copper strips, bits of steel, and metal wire.
8" H. x 10 3/4" W. x 3 1/4" D.
Made between 1999-2003.
Condition: Excellent condition, as sold. Most of Zed's detailed figural works are hand-built, thus there are rough patches and firing cracks at dense areas of the bodies, as manufactured.
Aggie Zed's work combines strong representational figural work at a small scale, together with sometimes fantastical combinations of human and animal forms. Where most of her human figures have the heads of an animal, this is a rare presentation of a male form, with a fully-realized cod fish.
Working with two private collectors, each of whom had collected Zed figures, I have a large group of the artist's work. For those entranced with the notion of human-animal interaction, Zed's work presents a unique opportunity to create a grouping in a small space.
