FEATURED ARTIST WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH-

"Art is Business"

Clay and Metal Black Art Sculptures - Kanika Marshall Black Art Mosaic for Sale, Pottery, Tribal

Kanika Marshall -- Sacramento CA

Kanika believes her African ancestors work through her fingers to create each collectible art sculpture in Kanika African Sculptures collection. Her creative process generally begins with a 25-pound block of red clay. Shapes of women, abstract forms, or other figures seem to take shape on the clay surface and my hands begin to move. Press. Scratch. Incise. Build. Her hands are driven by a spiritual force to shape the clay. She is as surprised and delighted as her clients by the result and they can sense and share in the excitement She feels for the clay. Joyful. The spiritual essence from the ancestors shines through. She says she is humbled.

"Some of the black doll figurines, goddess statues, mask sculptures, and art pieces are adorned with authentic African fabric, jewelry, leather, glass, beads, shells, recycled metal, stones, feathers, and other organic materials. The breast cancer survivor pendants are glazed with hopeful colors representing a zest for living. The pottery bowls and other clay vessels are decorated with interesting tribal designs and vivid colors. The recycled metal garden art pieces appeal to people who wish to bring harmony, movement, color and fun to their garden."
