  • Image of Crystal Morey: Anthropomorphic Sculpture May 14th & 15th About Crystal: As a visual artist, Crystal Morey takes inspirations from an alternative upbringing where she closely connected with the natural landscape around her. Living in rural Northern California shaped her perspective on nature and how humans interact with land, animals and each other. Now living in an urban environment, Morey aims to show our relationship to the world around us through the fragile medium of porcelain. With this delicate material she creates a heightened sense of urgency and stress, commenting on our human evolutionary path.
Morey received her BFA in Ceramic Sculpture from the California College of the Arts and her MFA in Spatial Art from San Jose State University. Her work has been included in many publications and online periodicals such as 500 Figures in Clay, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Beautiful Surface, and Beautiful Decay. Morey has been an artists in residence at both Watershed Center for the Ceramic Art and Penland School of Craft. Morey currently lives in Oakland, California where she maintains an active studio practice exhibiting her work in galleries and museums regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Three Realms

Three Realms opens February 4th from 6-9! Come join us at SMAart gallery for a great show!

Three Realms: Land Sea and Sky
Natasha DikarevaMalia Landis and Crystal Morey
January 26th through February 19th
SMAart Gallery
1045 Sutter St.

Three Realms - 1

Seeking inspiration from the environment around them, artists Natasha Dikareva, Malia Landis, and Crystal Morey are interested in the mystery, allure, grace and whimsy found in the natural and imagined world we all share.

In their own voices, each artist uses the tradition of clay to capture human emotion and catalogue ideas of growth and adaptation, the real and the imaginary, delicacy and impermanence, flight and stillness, inner and outward self.

Influenced by ideas of nature, myth, memory, and the passage of time, these artists work to understand and show the space we all inhabit. The Three Realms is a contemplation of theses spaces: the land and its interconnected dependencies in humans, plants and animals, the sea in its mysterious ecosystems and continual cycles, and the sky in its unpredictable temperament and as a gateway to infinite space.
