"Intention is of utmost importance to me. I begin each sculpture with a very specific motive in mind and allow the work to reveal itself to me over time."
For the past two decades, Beverly Morrison, a Los Angeles-based sculptor, has been refining her style and techniques in clay, often referring to her work as 'Modern Day Relics'. She celebrates the rawness of clay while embracing Eastern philosophies of imperfect beauty, repeatedly allowing crevices and textures to take the lead in her minimalistic forms and vessels.
A process-oriented individual, Beverly pays tribute to her creative muse, Mother Nature, by blending and formulating her own clay bodies, engaging in the "sculptural dance" from start to finish. She attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Arts from California State University Long Beach, yet her most noteworthy accomplishments in clay have come from a profound intuition and self-education, guided by the inspiration found in the natural world.
Graceful and sensual lines blend seamlessly with flowing abstract shapes and organic textures. Beverly Morrison encapsulates her sculptural odyssey with these words: "In addition to the female form, I'm perpetually enchanted by the wonders of the natural world. I employ a diverse array of sculpting techniques to grasp the texture and vitality inspired by nature. It's this harmonious fusion of elements that perpetually furnishes an endless wellspring of inspiration for me as an artist."
A physical connection to the Earth.
A spiritual refreshment for the mind.
