Beverly Morris: New ceramic sculpture

Educated at Tulane in political science, painting and graphic design, Beverly Morris eventually turned her attention to clay. Specifically, her work most often deals with vessels, those ancient, timeless forms that are among the oldest of human creations. Favoring a ceramic process called "hand-building" because of its "imperfect soul and unmistakable imprint of the artist," Morris says her current series, a portion of which was completed before Hurricane Katrina, "somewhat preternaturally had the meeting of water and earth as its theme. Works with titles such as Poseidon and Shell Flower, for example, were completed long before the storm devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. ... In the wake of the storm, my work became a way to heal. The clay panels are intended as an offering to Oya, the African goddess of storms, wind and water." -- D. Eric Bookhardt Through May
