Composed of resin and hand-painted by the artist, Beth Cavener’s Kept is available in an edition of 8 in 4 color variations.
Based in Montana, Cavener specializes in the creation of clay sculptures that often depict disturbing animals in unexpected poses—“suspended in a moment of tension,” as the artist explains. Her work explores human fear, aggression, and misunderstanding through animal forms, transforming her subjects into psychological portraits. The artist's process consists of first building solid sculptures on metal armatures, often with 2,000 or more pounds of clay at a time, cutting the piece into sections, hollowing out each part, and reassembling the pieces before firing.
