Ceramic Head by Jeff Nebeker

Ceramic head by Jeff Nebeker

The dimensions are uncertain.  My recollection is that it was about 12″ high, or less.  There is an unfortunate story to this piece. We have two of Nebeker’s paintings in our own collection, and were interested in buying one of his more recent clay representations of the cakes that he bakes in real life.  When we previewed the show, this piece was missing, and Beth Jones was reluctant to talk about it.  We found out, from other sources, that, when the doors were open to the auction, the assembled crowd rushed in to the gallery and some bozo knocked over the pedestal on which this piece was displayed, sending it crashing to the floor.
