Beverly Mayeri sculptures often “bridge the psychological, the political, and the sensuous within one hybrid form.”
Beverly Mayeri is a studio artist living in the Bay Area, USA,with well known as an ceramic and clay sculptor. She earned a BA from UCBerkeley and her MA in sculpture at SFState. She had early exposure to watercolor painting watching her mother paint landscapes and her father who painted vignettes with a humorous cast of characters.
“Most of my work explores the personal life, our yearnings, strengths and fears, our connections to each other and to the environment. I like to use the surface of the clay as a canvas where figures and events are painted, carved, or drawn into the clay often using patterns from nature as a backdrop”.
