Crystal Morey's Wounded and Wonderful Clay World

Crystal Morey's ceramic work is delicately moving, graceful yet forceful; artwork that makes a statement without hitting you over the head with it. Subtle, sensuous curves that make you want to caress the dusty clay, combine to form a message about losses to our environment and/or hearts. Eclectix visited her studio at the last First Fridays in Oakland's Compound Gallery. Poked the camera around once again to capture the great Morey vibe, art supplies and personal touch. Very happy to spot a number of beautiful new sculptures, inspired by flora and fauna. The next issue of Eclectix is concentrating on this theme and will feature some of her works in it - but for now, just enjoy a little look at her porcelain world, inspired, completed and in-progress.
