William Morris
Trophy #T400.09.02
26 x 14 x 12 in.

This beautifully sculpted and powerful xxxx is installed on a black panel, and is a great example of Morris’s hot–sculpting ability. Painterly surfaces are created by layering up to 21 differing colors of powdered glass and resists.

No artist has more successfully created a legacy of powerful, diverse and technically challenging works in glass.

A fascination with nature and early civilization has been a constant thread that has unified his artistic career.

In 2007 at age 49 William Morris stopped working in glass, ending a remarkable and much to short career. He felt that he said what he wanted to say, but we all wanted more! He left a wonderful legacy of museum quality work that fortunate collectors around the world are enjoying. Morris was honored for his accomplishments with a “Visionary Award” from the Museum of Art and Design in New York in 2001. William Morris’s sculptures are represented in over 70 museums and public collections worldwide; museum exhibition of his works are on going.
