Bevís porcelain landscapes and the figures that inhabit them have developed as an ongoing visual diary.
She enjoys the way humour and sentimentality have been used historically in ceramics to commemorate a moment in time and is influenced by Staffordshire flat backs, the circus, paper theatres and the quiet animation of the 1970ís.
Many pieces illustrate an attempt to work out the rules in the game of love. The figures can be feeling big or small, sometimes riding high, wobbling or just bored. The landscape provides their stage and gives us further clues.
Although the work illustrates her personal journey the pieces appeal to a wide audience who engage with the feeling of wanting to capture that elusive moment of contentment.
Each element or symbol has a history or a meaning of its own and her makerís mark, in the shape of a key, can be found somewhere on each piece.
