A ceramic candleholder in the form of a parakeet perched atop an old branch. This one faces left, and speaks only the truth.
Oh good, back here again. He wasn’t sure where “here” was, or what was going on, but he’d been there for a fair few days now. The pink lady would stand next to him, very still, for ages at a time. For some reason. It wasn’t terrible, just rather boring. At least he still had a nice juicy oran… Oh bother.
In 1866, Edouard Manet completed one of JJ’s favourite paintings – Lady with a Parakeet. Manet was a pioneer on the verge between Realism and Impressionism, and this piece was one of his earlier works, full of tantalising hints of styles & ideas yet to arrive. This candleholder is JJ’s tribute to the great artist, its hand-painted plumage representing the splendid colours on display at the height of impressionist art.
This delightful fellow is part of a pair, Left & Right. He won’t necessarily get lonely on his own, but we can see the two of them looking fabulous together at either end of a mantlepiece.
