Initially undertaking Three Dimensional Design at Grays School of Art, Morris went on to graduate with BA (Hons) in Ceramic Design in 2010 from The Glasgow School of Art. Since graduating, he has gone on to exhibit his work nationally and internationally as well as working with a range of artists, institutions and on various public projects. Currently based in Glasgow, Morris is often referred to as a ‘Nomadic Ceramicist’ working across Scotland.
Morris' most recent work engages with concepts of craft, material and place, motivated by an investigation of my own family heritage and material culture. Using research into the life of his grandfather (who lived in a fishing Ghillie in Aberdeenshire), Morris feels he has re-established a connection with a man he never met. By exploring objects owned by his grandfather, making site visits and collecting stories, he feels has uncovered a deeper understanding of our links to the past and the evolution of craft. Morris’s work facilitates conversations between found objects detached from their original environment and fabricated ceramic pieces, focusing on attitudes to survival through craft and the fragility of both the natural world and human condition.
