As you can see from the photographs above, Pardo created a highly expressive swirling abstraction of color that is both painterly and sculptural! It appears as though Pardo used very thick white enamel as the ground for her colorful abstraction, which she sculpted to have a three-dimensional quality giving it the swirling effect. She then applied the red, dark blue, green, and yellow enameling to complete the plates highly expressive swirling abstraction of color! The underside is counter enameled in an opaque speckled and variegated greenish-blue to brown.
Condition: This monumental 14 3/4 enamel-on-copper plate is generally in very good and clean condition with a few small scratches on the interior (not bad) and one very small rim bend (no cracks, chips, or crazing)! Overall, this is a top-notch example of Tania Pardos enamel art!
