Shivashtie Poonwassie explores the boundary between the inner self and the outer world. Shivashtie mainly focuses on the head and figure as vehicles for exploring issues surrounding uniqueness and individuality; from the private reality that exists within each of us to the public face on show. Shivashtie combines her interest of the individual with her passion for material, texture and surface; her sculptures reflect her ambitious and experimental nature.

'Perspective III (Big Outsize Bust/Head garden Yard sculpture statues)' by Shivashtie Poonwassie
Description: Modern Abstract Ceramic/ Brick/ Baked Clay Man`s Bust or Head sculptures or statues For Sale For Outside Outdoors Exterior in the Garden or Yard by Shivashtie Poonwassie whose wonderful vision is only exceeded by her Skill and Artistry. She describes it... "Perspective III sits within the confines of a metal frame which defines its space and creates a barrier between the viewer and it, albeit a slight one. It is glazed in a textured matt grey on one side and is bare brick on the other. When viewed from one side the sculpture has a very different feel and character than when viewed from the other - an exploration into the way we see objects and how we interpret what we see. It is the third brick head in a series of seven, all sculpted from the same type of brick, all with the same format and fired at the same time in the same kiln. The only deliberate difference being the colour of dry glaze applied. The Series refers to a number of levels of interpretation from sharing origins - all sharing the same gene pool i.e. the same brick, format and process, to sharing a bare brick side and a coloured brick size. The similarities and differences are tangible, each maintains a character and presence different to the others and yet retains a striking similarity. Perspective III almost breaks the mould being surrounded by its metal frame which provides security and quite a different feel. Suitable for placement both inside and outside, this piece will attract both flora and fauna if placed outside and over time will weather beautifully to create a distinctive and unique piece.
'Head (Blue) 2010 (abstract Outsize Brick Head sculptures/statues)' by Shivashtie Poonwassie
Description: Big or Large Baked Clay Outsize Blue Head sculptures or statues for sale For Indoors or outside in the garden by the Lively and inventive sculptress Shivashtie Poonwassie who describes the brilliant ArtWork thus.... Head (Blue) addresses the space within, beyond the surface of the sculpture, the inside has intentionally been removed to create a haven, a place surrounded by walls, sheltered from the outside. With one side open almost sliced off - the final piece does not `fit` perfectly, however you place it the inside is always visible. Made entirely from brick, glazed in deep rich blue the surface contrasts with the deep red robustness of the brick. Outside this sculpture will live an entirely different life, the porosity of the bricks will allow water to drain through, the cracks, nooks and crannies will allow a myriad of flora and fauna to find a haven and over time this sculpture will develop a personality and character even more unique and beautiful.

Description: A deceptive brick sculpture, which doesn`t always appear immediately. A young child on the verge of falling asleep - the point at which the real world becomes distant and sleep takes hold and carries you off to dreams and imaginary worlds. Matt glazed on one side representing the world of dreams and possibilities whilst appearing abstract from other angles and showing nothing but bare brick - a metaphor for the private world within.
'Dominance (Big ceramic Head abstract statues)' by Shivashtie Poonwassie
Description: Big Ceramic Brick Semi Abstract Figurative Man`s Head sculptures or statues for sale For Outside Outdoors in the Garden or Yard by the Beautiful Sculptor Shivashtie PoonWassie. She says of this sculpture... What makes us who we are? We have different `heads` for different situations, Dominance is a clever play on perspective, revealing different views of the same head - slightly confusing but definately there.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau
