An important artist, craftsperson and writer, Wood's life ran the course of the 20th century and included many of the figures that shaped it. The spirit of Dadaism, impact of Modernism, embrace of Eastern philosophy, and even the ornament of ethnic jewelry were all married in the artist's ceramics, which revealed a mastery of form combined with a preference for the naïveté of folk art. The Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts in Ojai, California, charged with preserving the artist's legacy, works with professors from local colleges and universities, to allow student interns access to the artist's library and studio, so that they can understand the processes involved in created works that combine wide-ranging influences to create distinctive works of art.
