Abid Javed | Pleomorph Sculpture | The Ode To

Editions: Unique & handmade
Material: Beige Stoneware
Size: ~27 cm high, 17 cm wide

This handbuilt, clay bodied sculpture draws inspiration from the concept of molecules changing shapes. By using a combination of pinching, coiling and slab methods, artist Abid Javed has created a tactile and timeless piece, reminiscent of the work by great artists such as Jean Arp, Isamu Noguchi and Brancusi.

In contrast to Abid Javed’s day job in biochemistry, where he looks at the complexities found in structures in biology, his ceramic work strives for simplicity. By shedding all details and looking at objects transparently and into their skeletal architecture, Javed’s work takes an abstract turn to bringing biological concepts and forms to life via sculptures and vessels.

Artist Abid Javed’s background is a culmination of his time spent in Hong Kong, England and Pakistan - picking up three different languages and three different cultures. Javed’s artistic journey has been as dynamic and non-traditional as his background is. During his PhD in biochemistry, while dabbling with painting and illustration on the side, Javed was enamoured by the visual aspect of biology with its array of storylines. This enamourment compelled him to find a medium that would allow him to translate these storylines in 3D - carefully exploring and finding his happy place in ceramics. Read more about his journey in Abid Javed's artist portrait.

Details: It's signed on the bottom by the artist. Please note that this is foremost a sculpture and has limited use as a vase, due to the shape and the unglazed doesn't hold water.
