Today, on Clay in Color, we chat with Murjoni Merriweather. She creates stylized figurative sculptures that celebrate Black beauty. In our interview, she talks about her unconventional approach to sculpting and materials, mainly using synthetic hair and glitter, and the evolution towards producing successful mixed media pieces. We also discuss staying open to learning new things, positive residencies, and getting ideas from dreams. Furthermore, she explains how her sculptures celebrate Black folks and their importance as a historical record.
