Beverly welds, fuses, solders, hammers, brazes, enamels, and cold connects metals, while often integrating silk, paper, paint, and organic materials into her pieces. Beginning with separate, distinct, and individual entities, she builds and compounds each segment to form a cohesive whole. Using any number of finishing techniques (sand, polish, paint, grind, file, patina, etc.), she works to enhance the natural beauty of metal, integrating all of the pieces so that the disparities fuse to become a unified structure.
