Large Flute Vase neoclassic signed by Tommy Zen and dated 2004

Tommy Zen Canadian artist creates unique earthenware pieces, in the manner of a sculptor. His enthusiasm for the matter and his attention to detail both arise from his cultural heritage: the artist grew up in a Venetian family, cabinetmaker from father to son.

The shapes of Tommy Zen’s work also draw from the origins of humanity, so much so that they look like vestiges brought to surface and light by a passionate archaeologist. Examples of his work include glazed amphorae in which the Phoenician sailors kept oil, pottery, massive storage jars of the Cretan civilization, Nineveh vases with long tapered legs, cinerary urns as found in Tibeto-Burman tombs.
