Always experimenting with different forms whether thrown on the wheel, hand built or a combination of both, Bev aims to create a unique and diverse body of work. Her lidded vessels have distinctive handles sometimes incorporating geodes or wood. Her ceramic art is complex, but still maintains simplicity and grace. She is inspired by the bold lines of modern architecture reflected in her sculptural geometric vessels, but primarily by nature. Unfurling leaves, mountain ranges, crashing waves, and the texture of bark provoke a range of ideas for manipulating clay into unique works of art.
As a certified teacher in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, a Japanese form of flower arranging, Bev designs and makes containers for use in these arrangements. She has used her containers in several exhibits at the National Arboretum. She sells Ikebana containers in Studio 326 and at special shows twice a year. Please contact her e-mail for upcoming dates!
Although she is most recognized for her dramatic black and white raku vessels, she fires much of her work in wood and salt kilns.
Her prices range from $40 to $300.
Please note that Bev is no longer at studio 342 due to changes implemented by the City's Office of the Arts.
Please visit her at STUDIO 326 at the opposite end of the hall on the 3rd floor.
Bev is a juried member of the Scope Gallery in Studio 19 where her ceramic work may be viewed and purchased.
