Bodies in Motion


“Bodies in Motion” represents the beauty of the Black Woman, as celebrated in Maya Angelou’s poem “Phenomenal Woman” from her 1978 work “"And Still I Rise.”" Colorful women are painted on clay tiles that are affixed to specially-aged steel strips. The strength of the steel tower is tempered by sensual rivers of silver and gold running lengthwise through each side. This look was achieved by specially rusting 4”x48” metal strips, running an angle-iron grinder along the length of each strip, then welding those strips to metal rods in the corners. The low-fire tiles are painted using various glazes which portray WILD women, STRONG women, BIG-HIPPED women, GRACEFUL women, BIG-HAIRED women, FULL-LIPPED women, PROUD women, PHENOMENAL women. This is one of my favorite poems of all time and Maya Angelou is one of the most incredible women I know.
