William Morris

William Morris - MEDICINE JAR, BAMBOO

Artist Statement

William Morris is considered to be a revolutionary and provocative artist as well as a master glassblower, whose work goes beyond mere craftsmanship to touch the souls and primal consciousness of its viewers.

William Morris is considered among the elite glass artists in the world. His technical mastery of such a fragile, difficult medium invokes immediate respect. His use of color and design on his sculptures, not to mention the subject matter itself, also are reasons for the artist's international renown. His work is strongly influenced by an interest in archeology and ancient pagan cultures and addresses the timeless relationship between humans and their environment.

Morris was born in Carmel, California in 1957 with an almost instant passion for nature. From early childhood he became fascinated with the Native American Burial Grounds around his home in California and has been captivated by archaeology, animals and art ever since.

He was educated at California State University in Chico, California as well as Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington where he trained in ceramics.
In 1978, Morris arrived at the Pilchuck Glass School and found work initially as a driver. Later, he began to work with Dale Chihuly, the founder of the school, and eventually became his chief gaffer in the 1980s. Morris remained with Chihuly for about 10 years before deciding to form his own studio and develop his own artistic style of glass blowing. Morris has developed a series of individual techniques which allow him to give his glass pieces the appearance of bone, ceramic, wood, stone and even leather. 

“It is of utmost importance to have a gallery’s support and enthusiasm when an artist makes a shift in his style and direction. Friesen Gallery has been unparalleled in the 20 years we have been working together, and for that my respect and appreciation are immense.” – William Morris.

World record for artist William Morris

NEW YORK — Bonhams has sold William Morris' 1995 "Sable Antelope Canopic Jar" for $290,500, an outstanding price which more than tripled its pre-auction estimate and set a world record price for a work of art by the artist at auction. A highlight of Dr Anthony Terrana's heralded collection of Contemporary Studio Glass, Bonhams offered the masterwork on June 14 in the 20th Century Decorative Arts auction. Awash in glowing orange/red hues and made of hand-blown glass, the extraordinary four-foot high jar features a superbly rendered antelope head and horns atop an elongated vase form decorated with frolicking antelopes. A private American buyer acquired the piece after a fierce bidding war.

WILLIAM MORRIS INTERVIEW

SVPN Magazine / March 2013

Sun Valley, Idaho

 

Now at 5+ years of retirement, has this period been as you envisioned?

As was my prior life, retirement is not as I envisioned. I am not that clever nor have the foresight to see how interesting and wonderful life can be as it unfolds.

Do you ever miss the glass-blowing pad or

the heat of the glory hole furnace?

Certainly, like reminiscing about an old romance, there are moments of nostalgia surrounding it, but nothing that has been strong enough to draw me back into it.

 

What are your thoughts on the works of contemporary glass

being created by the new glass blowing generation?

I am honestly not very in touch or current with what is being made, but what I have seen is that the skill and vision seems to be evolving.

It’s been a few years since you lived in Sun Valley,

what comes to mind now when you reflect on this area?

I have been returning to the Wood River Valley and the Sawtooths every summer and I still have a deep bond with the area and my friends that are there.

 

We realize that you seldom grant interviews, what best question would you like us to pose to you?

Asking me why I don’t grant more interviews.

 

Recognizing you are an extreme adventurer, what scares you most?

Not being able to experience my adventures.

 

Do you have a Bucket List?

My bucket list starts with each day that I get up .

Have you designated a William Morris Canopic Jar or Cinerary Urn

for your remains?

I am sure there will be something kicking around the studio to serve that purpose when the time comes, but I have not specifically chosen anything.
