About the project

_

Joy Brown’s rounded life-like figures have a universal spirit of harmony and optimism. People from all walks of life respond intuitively to these pieces, resonating with the warmth, serenity and wonder that the work conveys.

The Asian influence in her work reflects her early life in Japan and the rigorous discipline of a four year traditional Japanese apprenticeship in ceramics. In over 40 years of work with clay, Joy’s forms have evolved from early vessels and animal shapes to these friendly human-like forms in clay and bronze.

“My figures remind me of that peaceful place in myself – calm, open, aware.” – Joy Brown
