Crystal Morey

Artist Statement

With interests in both wild and urban landscapes, Morey is aware of human impacts on the environment and how all creatures and habitats are interconnected. Through the delicate medium of porcelain, she explores these ideas, creating a heightened sense of urgency and stress, commenting on our human evolutionary path.
