Brody’s work revolves around the female – the tree of life, earth mother and mother earth. She works with clay, cement, and papier mache bringing vibrant color and imagery to her figures.

Figurative sculptures create simple strong lines in space through gesture and stance. The women—strong, rooted, reaching—are minimal; often faceless, linear, and yet suggesting an individual. Additional imagery comes from reference to trees, branches or animals. When combined combined, rhythmic line and negative space imply dance or conversation.

All Brody’s work is done as an emotional and instinctive response to the world around. They cannot be explained intellectually; they grow from hand and heart.

Clay work includes animal and figurative bells and animal (small) handmade bells.
