Unique OOAK Ellen Jewett mixed media sculpture from 2011 Custom made for me to represent a water nymph with details of water lily pads, fishes and a dragonfly on her fin.
This piece is very rare and highly collectible because this is a representation of a humanoid mythological creature while Miss Jewett normally creates mainly animal inspired pieces.
Her technique evolves and gains in detail every single year so this 2011 creation was still made in a simpler, less detailed fashion. Parts of the artist’s fingerprints can be seen where she modelled the clay around the metal wires underneath for example. It is a truly charming piece. Her more recent smaller pieces sell for around $4500-6250 so this is a real steal at a low starting price.
Has always been carefully displayed in a glass dome. Over the years, it has started to show a few small cracks in the clay around the wires but nothing that distracts from the beauty of the piece. All details are shown in the pictures.
