- 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.

Three Realms opens February 4th from 6-9! Come join us at SMAart gallery for a great show!
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.
Thank you to Antler Gallery for showing my work at the LA Art Show! I am so excited and honored to be included with such an amazingly talented group of artists! On view at the Los Angeles Convention Center through January 31, 2016!

Lineage: Mentorship & Learning highlights the impact and importance of the teacher/student relationship. This exhibition illustrates the thread connecting multiple generations of ceramic artists from Peter Voulkos to today’s students.
For decades there has been an impressive variety and strength in California’s colleges and universities ceramic programs. AMOCA invited 25 current educators from the state to participate in Lineage. In addition to inviting the educators to exhibit their own work in the show, we asked them to identify their most influential instructors or mentors and to nominate their most promising students or recent alumni. A panel then reviewed the nominations and selected the artists to include in the exhibition. The artwork in Lineage ranges from functional to sculptural with the artists exploring a wide range of forms, techniques and narratives.
AMOCA is proud to feature the work of the past, present, and future of ceramics and education.

“At the Edge of Time”
November 28th, 2015 through January 10th, 2016
Works available: HERE
Humankind has become the driving influence and force behind natural evolution. We are able to alter life from a single cell all the way up to entire ecosystems. Intentionally or unintentionally, we are rapidly affecting changes to the environment that would have taken natural processes millennia. Through these actions we are leaving many vulnerable species and habitats frantic, facing disruptions and uncertain outcomes. In my work I investigate these actions while also creating an evocative and mysterious narrative that shows our interdependence with the land and animals around us.
As a species, we sit “At the Edge of Time”, faced with monumental questions leading to difficult, uncertain answers. My figures exist on this frontier, absorbed in their own feelings of stress, anxiety and ambivalence. Sculpted from the silken white earth of porcelain, I see these delicate figures as containing power – as modern talismans and precious telling objects. They are here to remind us of our current trajectory and potential for destruction and downfall.
