Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This form, though a modernist approach, was inspired by the wings of black swallowtails; and while the form itself may repeat, each vessel is unique and varies in texture as various slabs of black clay are hand pressed into a plaster mold.

Line, form, emotional texturing is always at the heart of my work. I love creating work that is minimal, but speaks volumes.This piece is part of my sculpture decor series.

Details: Black Stoneware; Cone 5/6 Oxidation Firing

Artist Profile

Born: 1975

Hometown: Long Beach, California

Based in: Los Angeles, California

Beverly Morrison (Los Angeles, Ca) is an American artist, graduated from California State University of Long Beach with B.A. in Studio Arts, emphasizing in sculpture.
She developed a relationship with the “art of making” from a very young age; inspired by her parents who are a dynamic combination of artistic skills and analytical thinking. She grew up in a rich environment of creativity and resourcefulness while cultivating a vigorous appreciation of working with one’s hands.

The most profound lesson of her childhood, however, came from her mother; who, from a very young age, taught Beverly the ‘art of observation’. With this education in hand, a lifetime of study in details, patterns and connections to the world around her became an everyday practice. Leading her to develop a long-lasting fascination towards the natural world, looked upon as one endlessly varied sculpture, and became the foundation of her art-making.

During her years of study in college and abroad, Beverly became enamored with many sculptors: Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore for their ability to communicate so much with so little. Rodin and Giacometti for their raw expressive textures. Bernini for his ability to transport his admirers to a state of emotional bliss. All of these attributes would affect her intensely and embedded themselves in her aesthetic mind for years to come.

Although her love affair with clay didn't start until years after college, it seemed an inherent choice given her affection for nature. Clay, especially, has its own voice and vitality. Combining these characteristics with elements of form, rhythm and texture studied and gathered from natural objects; Beverly finds a never-ending well of inspiration for her work as she strives to create tactile relationships and emotional environments between her sculpture and the observer.
