The Road Less Travelled
You may be accustomed to finding our traditional line, priced to be affordable to the middle class. We would love to be making it and also to be teaching others how to make our line but, alas, we do not currently have a production and training studio. To raise funds for a studio we are putting our vintage collection of rare, one of a kind and original design prototypes on the market. To learn more, follow our blog, Andersen Studio Evolution Diaries. We love this process and are committed to seeing it continue for the benefit of future makers.
The Eating Duck is the last sculpture Weston worked on, and the first one in which the subject is involved in an activity as opposed to a portrait in repose. It began as our egg form vase and the sculpture was built around it.The space created by the sculpture is very intimate. One can get very very close to the duck as it feeds. The Duck is slip cast in white stoneware and decorated by Weston in a naturalistic brown pattern in th brown slip designed by Weston, which we have always made from scratch using raw materials. The Duck is 8 inches long, 5 inches high and 6 inches diameter at the base.This is a rare prototype of which only two were made,It seemed no co-incidence that the last sculpture Dad created, hatched from an egg, one of my Dad's elemental forms, suggests a future direction for the company he founded. As I worked with these images I realized that the subject matter calls out to be reproduced as an outdoor sculpture.
