Common Body is a sculpture studio founded by artist Nathaniel Kyung Smith. They work with natural materials such as clay, stone and beeswax. Nathaniel is interested in exploring the connections between the human figure, nature, emotions and symbols.
Common Body sources the majority of their materials locally in order to limit our environmental impact and support bee health. They source the highest quality of pure beeswax and 100% cotton wicks from environmentally responsible family-run bee farms in Los Angeles. By supporting thoughtful beekeepers, we allshare in the well-being of the flora and fauna in our own community.
Since january 2020, Common Body has planted a tree through one tree planted for every shipment they have sent in order to achieve carbon neutral practices.
