Gene Pearson is one of Jamaica’s most influential and beloved artists. He is a deeply spiritual person who sometimes refers to himself as being an "Earth Angel". Constantly working in new ways, testing new material and new techniques Gene Pearson has produced a range of affordable pieces of works of art for sale on ShopMyJamaica.com.
These small ceramic sculptures are authentic designs, handcrafted one at a time in Gene’s rural Red Hills studio, just outside of Kingston Jamaica. They fall under two themes: Masks and Pearson Eggs. The masks range in size from small to large and are a stlyistic blend of African Baule masks, Egyptian sculpture and Gene’s own Jamaican sensibility with all its references to roots culture and Rastaiari.
The Pearson Eggs are Gene's version of a collectible item, inspired by the Fabergé Imperial Eggs, which he saw in an exhibit when he was a child. They are freestanding sculptural heads and each piece is unique, fabricated from clay and hand painted. Pearson Eggs are inherently beautiful, finely crafted and stylized sculptural faces and heads that have become a signature style of the Pearson works.

Please Note: As each piece is created individually by hand, variations in coloration, shape, texture, and pattern may occur. Orders are based on size and color and since the eggs and masks are hand made, add up-to two weeks delivery time to the average SMJ delivery time.
