Contorted Creativity: My Journey with Clay Sculpture

Juli Morsella, contemporary symbolism

As an artist, I have always been drawn to the plastic medium of clay. It allows me to explore my creativity in a way that I have not experienced with other materials like marquetry and oil paint. With three dimensions , building , removing, and building again, seeing with fingertips instead of eyes , I use a new language.

My latest series are sacred portable objects, abstract bits of the human body, that will be linked to chakras through colour and form, and charged through ritual with the energies represented by those chakras.
