Beverly Morrison ceramic sculptures

“Intentions are very important to me and I begin every sculpture with a very a concrete motive. I empty myself, infusing my ‘will’ upon each piece and the clay absorbs it. Working with the female form has proven to be a natural vehicle for expressing and displaying this type of ‘saturation’. I never grow tired of the unending possibilities it presents.”

 

Graceful and sensual figurative sculptures with a theme of elemental like forms merging with flowing abstract shapes and natural textures. Beverly Morrison sums up her sculptural journey when she says, ” along with the female form, I am constantly in awe of the natural world. I use different techniques of texturing and coloring, inspired by nature, to assist with my exploration of certain ‘conflicted states’ in my work. Figures may exude a sense of balance and harmony or a sort of sensual tranquility; while, superficially, textural surfaces influence them with a type of emotional conflict. ”
“The figure is a subject matter that embodies so many enticing and seductive qualities and being able to combine such differing characteristics is intoxicating: supple in body, graceful in line, elegant in form; and yet exuding a presence of strength and emotional intensity all at once. It’s this fusion of characteristics that radiates an unending supply of motivation for me as an artist.”

Meaning ‘The First’, the Saisho has been cast in glacier white porcelain, and enhanced with a colored slip inlay. The surface has been sealed and buffed to a slight sheen.The Brushwork Series makes a statement on mindfully living in the moment and capturing that instant through a ‘playful gesture’ of a brushstroke.

This is one of my favorite pieces to date. I keep her in my home as a sort of spiritual guardian. She reminds me of where I was, what I have accomplished and where I am going.

“From beneath the darkened murky waters the Lotus grows.
Navigating her way towards the warmth of the sun.
The filth of circumstance falling away as she awakens to the new possibilities of life.”

    The little black & yellow tea bowl at the top right of this web site page… it’s beautiful. Who made it? What story is it in? I’d love to know. Thanks,
