This is really a special piece. A wonderful large earthenware clay plaque with what I think is Enamel Oil Enamel paint. The reason I say it is that is because the only other example I have found that is similar is a piece that is shown on the S aidye Bronfman Award website and is in the permanent collection of the Mackenzie Art Gallery collection in Saskatchewan.
They have a similar charger from 1975 with the same kind of characters and style. This round plaque measures 14 1/2 inches in diameter and is in excellent condition. Clean with no chips at all.
Housed in its original black background and frame. Backing is wood and has the original title of the work. Frame measures about 22 x 22 inches. Do your own research on the artist and this piece.
A chance to own an early important work that really belongs in a museum. Framed and ready to hang.For those not familiar with the artist his biography from a gallery that represents the artist reads: In addition to being a ceramics artist of renown, Jack Sures helped teach two generations of Saskatchewan ceramic artists. He joined the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus (later the University of Regina) in 1965 to establish the ceramics and printmaking department. In 1969, he became the Chair of the Department of Visual Arts. Under his leadership, the Regina Campus of the University of Saskatchewan established a world reputation for excellence in ceramics. Jack Sures' major public work includes a 2,900 square foot mural for the Sturdy Stone Centre in Saskatoon, a terrazzo floor for the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre in Regina, and a mural for the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. He was a member of the Order of Canada and was awarded the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. In 2017, Sures received the Saskatchewan Arts Board Lieutenant Governor's Lifetime Achievement Award and was also the 2018 recipient of the Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence in the Fine Crafts from Canada Council for the Arts. In addition to helping foster ceramics in Saskatchewan, Jack Sures worked for the United Nations Handcraft Development Program to set up a ceramics program in Grenada - during which time he engineered a kiln that could use nutmeg shells as its fuel.
