William Morris

William Morris was born in Carmel, CA.  He attended California State University in Chico, CA and Central Washington University in Ellensburg.  Morris met Dale Chihuly in 1978, and in 1979 began work as Chihuly’s head gaffer.  The pair worked closely together for eight years, traveling around the world to create art installations.  As an artist, Morris was deeply influenced by the time he spent with Chihuly, but developed his own unique style during his career.

Morris’ unusual method of creating glass sculpture is perhaps part of the draw and intrigue in his art. Blown glass is shaped into small figurines, and then brushed with matte color pigments to transform his sculptures into objects that recall prehistoric civilizations.

William Morris has had incredible success with his work. It is featured in numerous public and private collections, as well as over 100 museums across the world, these include the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Seattle Art Museum, and Museum fur Kunst und Gewereb in Hamburg, Germany.

Morris retired from glassblowing in 2007.

Morris was selected by the Seattle Art Dealers Association (SADA) to be a part of the Century 21 exhibit at the Wright Exhibition Space in Seattle.
