L.A.-based sculptor Beverly Morrison, has been refining her style and techniques in clay for over two decades. Her work explores the raw form of clay while embracing Eastern philosophies of imperfection. Through her unique process, the honors her muse—mother nature—by engaging in the “sculptural dance” from start to finish. “My sculptures, referred to as ‘Modern Day Relics,’ embody the primitive elegance and raw energy of the human experience,” she notes. “Clay, with its unique qualities and personality, is a vital part of my creative process. I approach the material with reverence and devotion, fostering a symbiotic relationship as I sculpt. The clay absorbs and holds onto the stories I tell, enabling me to express narratives with ease and understanding. To me, clay is the flesh of the earth and each piece I create reflects the deep bond I have with this elemental material and my wish to share that connection with the world.”
