Limited edition of 50. Plinth Ikon 50 Edition.
40 x 59 x 28 cm
"A still life is a work of art that predominantly depicts inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural or man-made, and in my case, a household jug.
However, this jug sculpture contains a narrative, which involves an unknown time duration, through a shift in its position" - Richard Wilson
"This inadvertently turns the sculpture into a double paradox in that
a) It is a still life subject yet describes a moment of time through motion…
b) ...the work is forever trapped in the act of moving.
The sculpture is unbounded by gravity allowing it to sit in a number of chosen positions and is produced by pouring slip into a mould and then firing the form in a kiln" - Richard Wilson, 2015
