Crystal Morey: Figural Sculpture Demonstration Workshop
Friday, September 20, 6–8pm
Saturday, September 21, 9am–3pm
Sunday, September 22, 9am–12pm
Join artist Crystal Morey in Figural Sculpture: Additive / Subtractive Processes in Porcelain, a weekend of sculpting demonstrations and conversation, exploring the hand sculpted porcelain figurine coinciding with her solo exhibition “Venus on the Waves” at Ferrin Contemporary in nearby, North Adams. Crystal Morey will share her process of creating a figure in hollow form, while adding layers of additive and reductive detail. Crystal will discuss the development of her techniques, proportion, anatomy, and gesture, the importance of water content in porcelain, and creating the delicate details that add content and emotion to her work.
No experience is required. Limited to 20.
Crystal Morey lives and works in Oakland California, where she maintains a full-time studio practice. An emerging artist in both the new contemporary, pop-surrealist genre as well as the art-historical craft and decorative arts arena, Crystal’s work has been featured in numerous books and magazines, shown in galleries and museums, and collected around the world. Morey is known for her hand sculpted, highly detailed porcelain works of human-animal hybrids. She finds her inspiration in art history, Baroque porcelain traditions of Europe and ideas of contemporary environmental issues. Morey creates work with delicate beauty and empathic narratives of today’s rapidly changing ecosystems. Crystal Morey received her BFA in Ceramic Sculpture from the California College of the Arts and her MFA in Spatial Art from San Jose State University. She continues her studies through artists residencies and expansive interests in art history and museum research.
