YUGEN SERIES – NO. 1  – Beverly Morrison


In Japanese, Yugen means having a profound awareness of the universe that triggers an emotional response.

‘When I started creating these pieces, “The Universe Speaks” was a phase that kept repeating in my head. Every piece is unique, yet attempting to convey the birth, death and energy of the cosmos…..the divine spark.”




‘Sora’ – Beverly Morrison

In Japanese, Kū or Sora, most often translated as “Void”, but can also mean “sky” or “heaven”. Representing those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. The word seemed to fit the vision I had when sculpting this piece. I was staring down into a pond, watching the shadows above me being cast down onto the waters surface. The shadows of the tree danced with life, fueled by the wind around me, yet reflected a void. Sora represents life in the stillness of the void.

Details: A process of combining Stoneware Clay, Porcelain Slip and Metallic Gold Glaze



Beverly Morrison--Moon ceramic sculpture

Beverly Morrison — ‘Moon’

H21.5 inches

“Moon” is about the interconnection of harmony and discord. The sculpture was created with two distinct clay bodies that have differing shrinkage rates. During the firing process they meld together, yet pull apart all at the same time creating cracks and imperfections in a harmonic way.


‘Rain’ – Beverly Morrison, LA

” Back in 2012 I went on a ceramics tour in Japan. I had the pleasure to be introduced to the work of Hiroshi Senju, a contemporary Japanese painter best known for his large-scale monochromatic depictions of waterfalls. This piece is dedicated to his work.”

ADIRE I--stoneware-Malene Barnett

‘ADIRE I’ — Malene Barnett

stoneware sculpture

Redemption critiques the relationship between social relevance and inequality. Every piece, though built by hand in Brooklyn, pays homage to the traditional hand-building techniques found in the Yorubaland region of south-western Nigeria. Using the Gele-headwrap as a signifier, Malene blends her two-year-study of the slab building technique with an enquiry into the uncertainties of life to construct sculptures in rippling layers of clay. She gathers inspiration for her twisted sculptures from the unpredictable obstacles we encounter in life. The bold, organic patterns are etched freehand using underglazes and wax to reference the dye resist technique used in Adire textiles.

‘Kintsugi’  —  Alyse Stone



  A tribute to black women from many years past. Kintsugi is the Japanese practice of repairing broken ceramics with gold. The black texture is designed to be reminiscent of the system of slavery. The sculpture stands tall, as the colors create a stark, visual contrast showcasing the elegance, despite the obstacles. This piece is made with clay and metal patina.

Yolande Milan Batteau


Batteau studied philosophy and painting at the Sorbonne in Paris, San Francisco Art Institute, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Having traveled the world early in her career, Batteau has a strong affinity for a wide range of cultures and their arts. Many of the techniques, motifs and materials she has fallen in love with on her travels manifest in her artwork. Belgian simplicity, French decadence, African complexity, Japanese refinement, and American bravado are all equally beloved, alongside a host of more niche, less easily-definable aesthetics.

‘Distancer Pursuer’ – Liz Collins

Mullin Art Gallery

Tactile and energetic, Collins’ large-scale wall works recall the geometric abstract weavings of the Bauhaus, and the “retinal titillations” of Op-art painting. As always, Collins queers these influences to create an erotically charged language of hot color and frenetic pattern. “When I think about my work related to Maximalism,” she shares, “it makes sense in relation to the dualities I’m preoccupied with like pleasure and pain, chaos and order, restraint and release – extremes that are interdependent.” Tightly woven areas are juxtaposed with luxurious swaths of loose, flowing threads, and allusions to the body erupt amidst the stricture of grids.

The maximalist impulse is subversive by nature; excessive and decadent. Not only does it flout bourgeois notions of taste ala “less is more”, but it also flagrantly reconfigures them. Jean Genet brilliantly summed this up in The Thief’s Journal when he wrote: “To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance.” With their electric, bombastic hues and dizzying, graphic patterns, Liz Collins textile works exemplify such harmony.
