Like Body, Like Mind

Beth Cavener Stichter quoted, "I rely on animal body language in my work as a metaphor for these underlying patterns, transforming the animal subjects into human psychological portraits." She explains the similarities of human and animal body language, as well as the nature of the message through the subconscious mind.

Beth uses clay to sculpt these amazing art, as she explains, "I have always linked the materiality of flesh and the memory of it with clay." Her larger pieces would take 3 to 5 months to complete. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sculpture from Haverford College, and Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from The Ohio State University.
