Clay Torso Sculpture
Abstract white clay "Torso" Sculpture on a square wooden base by artist, Constance Barnard Pach (B. 1919 - D. 2023). Signed on base.
Constance worked in clay, stone, wood, welded materials and the lost wax process for creating bronzes. Well into her 80s, visitors might find her in the garage, welding mask on and wielding an acetylene torch as sparks flew. Her pieces were exhibited at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and at the Museum of Fine Arts, both in Boston. She did commissioned pieces for private and public institutions such as the Cox Cancer Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut. She also sculpted trophies for Harvard and Radcliffe track competitions.
