A striped orange-red and white ode to abstraction, particularly the iconic work of Gene Davis.
In the seventies, conceptual art was huge. Literally, in the case of Davis: his Franklin's Footpath piece was the largest ever crafted at the time, his work stretching far and wide outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1972. Simple jaunts of geometry from the likes of Davis, Sol Lewitt and Frank Stella were big, bold, and minimal.
That intellectual subversive bent is paid homage with this vase. The golden neck glimmers and the black base shines; the colours clear and crisp. They honour the art of the outsider; those who understand that less is more. JJ adores this era of mid-century American art, and this vase encapsulates why.

Gene Davis, Franklin’s Footpath, 1972
American painter Gene Davis was a master of stripes. Although his medium was acrylic on canvas, artwork, covered the road leading up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The painting was the world’s largest at the time of its creation and served as a particularly playful pathway for visitors to enjoy en route to the gallery.
