So realistic you almost want to take a bite. Lisa Nye Dawson's clay pears, with her exact detail from texture to varying coloration, are an ode to the simple and natural elements of earth. Dawson omits no detail, perfectly painting the speckled coloring and even the natural bruising of this delicious fruit. A perfect "pearing" of art for your mantle or bookshelf.
Dawson sculpts each pear by hand in porcelain and then fires them in the kiln. She then paints with gouache and coats in a blend of beeswax and resin, a medium used by artisans since the 1st century BC.
