Have you heard the news? A visitor at a Miami museum recently broke an iconic Balloon Dog sculpture by Jeff Koons! But don't worry. We have another version of the blue balloon dog available for you, sitting safely in the original box.
For those unfamiliar with Jeff Koons, he is a contemporary artist known for his larger-than-life sculptures, often inspired by everyday objects. One of his most famous works is the Balloon Dog, a series of sculptures resembling popular children's party decorations. It marries the traditional process of fine porcelain production with new, never before applied technologies to achieve the dog's iconic hyper-polished metallic-like surface. The broken sculpture in Miami as part of this series, and it's a shame to see such a beloved work of art damaged.
'Ceramics have had such a huge presence in our history' Jeff Koons said.
