This auction is for a stunning Jack Black Sculpture of a Native American Woman entitled "Innocent" from 1989.The sculpture is about 6 inches tall - the woman is almost 5 inches tall. The base measures about 7 inches long by about 4 inches wide. Her dress is white with a nice sheen to it and it is cool and very smooth to the touch. The base, face, hair and pottery are all an earthy sand color and are not smooth, but feel like a clay flower pot. Simply beautiful - t is a nice detail to the back of her hair as you can see in the pictures. The sculpture is etched (signed) on the bottom with the artist name and year in which it was created. The piece is in nearly perfect condition - no scratches, dents or flaws that I can see or feel. I am the original owner of this sculpture and it comes from a smoke free home. It comes with the original CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (see picture). The certificate of authenticity tells the story of the artist and I quote it as follows: "Jack Black's Work is a tribute to the culture and beauty of the Southwest. His sculpture is characterized by graceful lines and simplicity of form. The glazed surfaces are smooth ... to the eye as well as the touch, and the understated detail creates a feeling of timelessness. Black's distinctive choice of color calls to mind the blue sky, canyons and vistas of Arizona. He begins with raw clay to create the original sculpture from which production molds are made. Then stoneware figures are cast. After the figures are cleaned and detail is added by hand, they are fired at 1900 degrees. Jack's works are then sanded, cleaned again and brushed with three coats of high fire glaze. The entire process is by hand. The last step involves refiring at 2000 degrees. Each of Jack Black's sculptures is unique - no two are exactly alike. Arizona artist, Jack Black, lives and works in Tucson. Born in Galveston, Texas, he attended the Institute of Design in Chicago. Jack spent 20 years creating sculptures for his own pleasure before opening his first studio in Sedona, Arizona in 1984. Jack Black's works reflect the style and cultural heritage of the Southwest and will bring years of pleasure to collectors throughout the country. Innocent, dated 8/28/93 - Jack Black.
